Permeable reactive barriers for groundwater remediation. Scientific coordinator for demonstration programme.

Project Details

Description

Groundwater polluted with chlorinated compounds and metals can be remediated by use of reactive material such as metallic iron. The Danish EPA has started a demonstration programme where reactive walls are to be used. Under this programme IMT (PK) serves as a scientific coordinator working together with Danish EPA, counties and consulting companies. Besides research is carried out on reactive walls by use of laboratory experiments, especially looking at chomate reduction and simultaneous removal of chlorinated solvents.

The demostration programme is closed and the final summary report about to be published.
