Using granular iron (Fe) and nickel-plated iron (Ni/Fe), this paper examines the effectiveness of these two types of reactive materials for the treatment of hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine (RDX), a common groundwater and soil contaminant at military facilities. RDX degraded very rapidly in the presence of both Fe and Ni/Fe in column and batch… CONTINUE READING
