EnviroMetal Technologies Inc. (http://www.eti.ca/)
EnviroMetal Technologies Inc. (ETI) has the exclusive commercialization rights to a patented process developed by the University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada that uses zero-valent metals (commonly granular iron) to rapidly degrade halogenated volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in groundwater to non-hazardous end products. This technology known as granular iron reactive wall or permeable reactive barriers (PRB), was recognized as “one of the most exciting developments in treating contaminated groundwater” (US EPA, 1999), and has subsequently been accepted in marketplace through over 125 applications around the globe and a ten year track record of successful field performance. Its technical feasibility has been evaluated and supported through the publication of over 500 scientific papers [cgr.ese.ogi.edu/ironrefs ]. ETI’s clients include major U.S. government agencies such as the DoD and the DOE, and large industrial clients such General Electric, Rockwell and E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company, have recognized ETI’s technology as offering the most cost-effective long-term alternative for remediation of chlorinated and recalcitrant compounds.
