Electrochemical Remediation Research Honors

Dr. James Farrell's SBRP supported research on the electrochemical remediation of arsenic and chromium has recently received several honors. Based on this research, Dr. Farrell was asked to deliver the keynote talk entitled "Ab Initio and Force Field Modeling of Environmental Sorption Phenomena" at the Rio Grande Water Sciences Meeting. This meeting was held in Albuquerque, NM on March 5, 2005.

In addition, Dr. Farrell was asked to write a review article for the book: Engineering Applications of Zero-Valent Iron for Water and Ground Water Pollution Control. Dr. Farrell's review article is entitled: "Hexavalent Chromium Removal from Water using Zerovalent Iron Filings".

Dr. Farrell's graduate student, Dhananjay Mishra, has also received attention for his research on electrochemical remediation of arsenic and chromium. Dhananjay received an Outstanding Paper Certificate of Merit for his presentation: "Understanding Nitrate Reactions with Zerovalent Iron Media in Permeable Reactive Barriers", at the 228th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society in Philadelphia, PA on August 24, 2004.
