Enhanced Permeable Reactive Barriers

Dr. Hart and Dr. Kevern receive a provisional patent for passive groundwater treatment using enhanced pervious concrete as a permeable reactive barrier for groundwater treatment. For their work they were awarded Fasttrack funding to commercialize the technology and a NSF EAGER award to investigate the processes behind remediation in groundwater. In this research the investigators seek to leverage waste byproducts with little to no commercial value as a reactive material incorporated within a permeable media. Undergraduate and graduate students are actively performing this research under the direction of both professors. If interested in participating, email Dr. Hart
