In Situ Chemical Reduction (ISCR) Overview

ISCR combines both biological processes and metallic particle driven abiotic pathways to chemically reduce chlorinated contaminants into harmless end products. ISCR agents are typically applied in combination with an electron donor type substrate which creates a biologically induced reducing environment. The incorporation of iron as metallic particles or ferrous salts (Fe2+) can enhance chlorinated contaminant remediation by enabling various chemical reduction pathways. The application of ISCR is also often used in conjunction with electron donor substrates like 3-D Microemulsion® to limit the formation of undesirable chlorinated contaminant breakdown products such as Cis-DCE and vinyl chloride.
