Granular iron technology destroys dissolved volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in groundwater, including common chlorinated solvents such as tetrachloroethene (PCE), trichloroethene (TCE), dichloroethenes (DCEs), vinyl chloride (VC) and trichloroethane (TCA). This patented process uses granular iron placed below-ground such that it intercepts the contaminated groundwater path of a plume. As the plume passes through the granular iron PRB, under natural flow conditions, the VOCs are degraded to nontoxic end products such as ethene, ethane, methane and chloride ions.
