About this book

This is the first complete edited volume devoted to providing comprehensive and state-of-the art descriptions of science principles and pilot- and field-scaled engineering applications of nanoscale zerovalent iron particles (NZVI) for soil and groundwater remediation. Although several books on environmental nanotechnology contain chapters of NZVI for environmental remediation (Wiesner and Bottero (2007); Geiger and Carvalho-Knighton (2009); Diallo et al. (2009); Ram et al. (2011)), none of them include a comprehensive treatment of the fundamental and applied aspects of NZVI applications. Most devote a chapter or two discussing a contemporary aspect of NZVI. In addition, environmental nanotechnology has a broad audience including environmental engineers and scientists, geochemists, material scientists, physicists, chemists, biologists, ecologists and toxicologists. None of the current books contain enough background material for such multidisciplinary readers, making it difficult for a graduate student or even an experienced researcher or environmental remediation practitioner new to nanotechnology to catch up with the massive, undigested literature. This prohibits the reader from gaining a complete understanding of NZVI science and technology. In this volume, the sixteen chapters are based on more than two decades of laboratory research and development and field-scaled demonstrations of NZVI implementation. The authors of each chapter are leading researchers and/or practitioners in NZVI technology. This book aims to be an important resource for all levels of audiences, i.e. graduate students, experienced environmental and nanotechnology researchers, and practitioners evaluating environmental remediation, as it is designed to involve everything from basic to advanced concepts.


About the authors

Dr. Tanapon Phenrat is an assistant professor and a principal investigator of Research Unit for Integrated Natural Resources Remediation and Reclamation (IN3R), Department of Civil Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Naresuan University, Phitsanulok. Also, he serves as the Deputy Director of Center of Excellent for Sustainability of Health, Environment, and Industry (SHEI), Faculty of Engineering, Naresuan University. He has 13-year experience in conducting research and professional work in the field of remediation of contaminated sites. He has published 36 peer-reviewed research articles in international journals including several highly-cited research articles in nanoscale zerovalent iron applications. He is also a pioneer in remedial engineering in Thailand and has worked collaboratively as a consultant for affected communities, government agencies, and potentially responsible contaminated site owners. He investigated more than 40 contaminated sites and successfully remediated 6 contaminated sites using soil vapor extraction, in-well treatment with chemical oxidation, colloidal carbon injection, colloidal iron oxide injection, magnetic-assisted soil washing with zerovalent iron, and phytoremediation. Dr. Phenrat was awarded with 15 research awards (6 international awards) in the field of environmental remediation.

Dr. Gregory V. Lowry is the Walter J. Blenko, Sr. Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. He is the Deputy Director of the NSF/EPA Center for Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology (CEINT). He is on the editorial board for Environmental Science: Nano and Nature: Scientific Data. He served as the founding Associate Editor of Environmental Science: Nano for five years (2013-2018). Dr. Lowry earned his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of California at Davis, M.S. from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, and Ph.D. in Civil and Environmental Engineering and Stanford University. His current research and teaching focuses on safely harnessing the unique properties of engineered nanomaterials for applications in remediation, water treatment, and food production. He is currently serving on the National Academy of Science Committee on “Science Breakthroughs 2030: A Strategy for Food and Agricultural Research” and he served on the National Research Council committee to Develop a Research Strategy for Environmental Health and Safety Aspects of Engineered Nanomaterials.  Dr. Lowry has received awards from the ASCE (Walter L. Huber Civil Engineering Research Award), AEESP (Malcolm Pirnie/AEESP Frontiers in Research Award), and ACS (Best Feature Article in ES&T for 2012). He was recognized as a highly cited researcher (top 1%) in the area of environment and ecology by Thompson Reuters in 2014 and 2015. Dr. Lowry has served as PI or Co-PI on grants from the National Science Foundation, U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Department of Energy, and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and from industry.
