Remediation with Nanoscale Zero-Valent Iron (nZVI): Recent Developments, Applications, and Global Perspectives PDF Print E-mail

A short course held on May 18, 2014 during Ninth International Conference on Remediation of Chlorinated and Recalcitrant Compounds, Monterey USA


Workshop objective

Provide an overview of the current state-of-the-practice of environmental remediation with nZVI through discussions of (1) global experience with nZVI, (2) modern manufacturing methods, (3) scientific advances including remediation technology combinations featuring nZVI, and (4) illustrative case studies from North America and Europe. The potential audience includes environmental professionals such as consultants, regulators, and site managers; scientists and engineers interested in environmental nanotechnology; Brownfield property developers; and community stakeholders.


The instructors for this short course include some of the leading nZVI researchers and remediation practitioners in the world. Using illustrative examples from the extensive research literature and recent large-scale field demonstrations, they will describe not only the current state-of-the-practice in North America and Europe but also their perspectives on its future directions.
