Use of Soy Proteins or Soy Derivatives and Zero-Valent Iron for Environmental Remediation (Technology #: 082106-01)

Description:

The technology involves the preparation of dispersions of zero-valance nanoscale iron particles and one of soy protein, soy milk, or other soy derivative. The dispersions can be used to treat contaminated soil or water.


ADVANTAGES

Dispersions can be injected directly into soil and groundwater for site remediation. Soy protein, a natural substance devoid of any known adverse environmental impact, can stabilize and enhance the mobility of the zero-valent iron particles in the subsurface environment.


APPLICATIONS
  • Treatment of contaminated soil
  • Wastewater treatment

STATUS OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

This technology is protected under US Patent 7,507,345
