Oxygen’s promise for groundwater cleanup a step closer with SRNL research

Dr. Brian Looney
Senior Advisory

Savannah River National Laboratory researchers Brian Looney and Miles Denham have patented an invention for allowing permeation of a subsurface area with the right quantity of oxygen for effective groundwater remediation. Oxygen has long held promise as a means of remediating a variety of contaminants from groundwater, but effectively applying it underground has been problematic, according to information from the lab.
