Environment International 124:265-277(2019)

This review focuses on the interactions between nanoscale zero-valent iron (nZVI) and three kinds of functional anaerobic bacteria commonly used in anaerobic bioremediation. The coupling effects of nZVI and the functional bacteria on contaminant removal in the integrated system are summarized. In addition, this review also discusses the main factors influencing the removal efficiency of contaminants in the integrated treatment system, including nZVI species and dosage, inorganic ions, organic matters, pH, type of pollutants, temperature, and carbon/energy sources, etc. Lastly, future research needs are proposed to better understand this integrated technology and effectively apply it in groundwater remediation. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0160412018330204
