Meisol is developing a new composite material for remediation of contaminated groundwater. The Composite material is formed by bonding nano-sized zero-valent iron (NZVI) particles with metalloporphyrin catalysts onto a diatomite matrix that shows catalytic activity toward different contaminants especially to halogenated organic compounds that are common soil and groundwater pollutants.
The material offers many advantages- it is environmental-friendly and may be more cost effective due to its high efficiency small amounts are needed for treatment and improved physico-chemical characteristics. The biggest advantage is that the technology can treat several contaminants in one step treatment.; Proven record of commercial use
