In-Situ Chemical Reduction (ISCR): The Core Concepts and Their Engineering Implications
In this webinar we are pleased to have a special guest presentation by Paul Tratnyek, PhD, Professor in the Division of Environmental and Biomolecular Systems (EBS) and Institute of Environmental Health (IEH), at the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU). In this presentation he discusses in situ chemical reduction (ISCR), specifically with regard to its core concepts and their engineering implications. Recent groundwater remediation studies demonstrating that there can be an abiotic component to natural attenuation, together with the proliferation of remediation technologies like zero-valent iron, has led to the emergence of a general class of groundwater treatment processes known as “in situchemical reduction” (ISCR). As the field of ISCR matures, it is developing “core concepts” that link fundamental understanding of the controlling processes to technology performance in the field.
