New AIR-STABLE nZVI powder, consisting of Fe(0) surface stabilized nanoparticles. The product is easier and safer to store, transport, handle and process compared to non-stabilized nZVI NANOFER 25P but it still keeps extreme reactivity with reducible pollutants in water environment.
Advantages of the air-stable product

Advantages of the air-stable product

  • Stabilization by thin anorganic surface layer protects nZVI against rapid oxidation if in contact with air (no pyrophoric properties, easy handling, much lower packaging and transportation costs compared to NANOFER 25P).
  • The product keeps highest reactivity in water in spite of surface stabilization.
  • Shipping cost savings up to 80%: only reactive material is transported in comparison to water slurry products (composed by 20% of nanoparticles and 80% of water).
  • Practically unlimited storage time in closed packaging.
  • Modification by CMC improves migration properties.

NanoRem Pilot Site – Spolchemie I, Czech Republic: Nanoscale zero-valent iron remediation of chlorinated hydrocarbons

This bulletin describes a pilot study of in situ nanoscale zero-valent iron (nZVI) remediation. It was undertaken as part of the NanoRem Project.

Use of Various Zero Valent Irons for Degradation of Chlorinated Ethenes and Ethanes
Amongst all of the reducing agents that can be used in environmental remediation, zero valent iron (ZVI) is one of the most common due to its environmental acceptance, high reaction rate, good availability, and long-term stability. Moreover, ZVI mobility, stability and reactivity can be enhanced by the application of a DC electric current, ie electrokinetics (EK). In the study, six various slurries containing different ZVI were tested for their efficacy for chlorinated ethenes and ethanes degradation. Nano-scale zero valent iron STAR had the highest reaction rates compare to the other ZVI tested.
