In Situ Chemical Reduction: what, when, why and how?
This ebook outlines the benefits of in situ chemical reduction (ISCR), an approach that can be highly effective when designing a remedial strategy for a contaminated site. Chemical reduction involves the transfer of electrons from a reductant such as zero-valent iron to a molecule such as perchloroethylene (PCE), during which the molecule is converted to harmless compounds. Though in situ chemical reduction has been in use for some time, recent technological advances have improved it as a remedial approach.
