RESEARCH BRIEF 290: PROMISING MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY REDUCES CHLOROBENZENE IN GROUNDWATER
National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, Superfund Research Program, February 2019

A new Superfund Research Program collaboration has developed a promising groundwater cleanup technology that provides an efficient, low-maintenance method of removing chlorobenzene and other compounds from water. The method integrates electrochemical oxidation, which uses electricity to transform contaminants into non-toxic substances, and membranes containing palladium, a metal used as a catalyst in many industrial chemical synthesis applications and groundwater treatment. https://tools.niehs.nih.gov/srp/1/ResearchBriefs/pdfs/SRP_ResearchBrief_290_508.pdf
