  • Use with equal ease in the field or in the laboratory
  • Kit contains required reagents and equipment
  • Fe II colorimeter optional
Description:

Natural attenuation can be a technically, environmentally and economically preferred choice for remediation of hydrocarbon and chlorinated hydrocarbon contaminants at suitable sites. Ferric iron reducing bacteria can degrade benzene, vinyl chloride, and other contaminants if adequate BIOAVAILABLE Iron is present. The test is used in conjunction with other accepted tests to evaluate site suitability for natural attenuation; and for monitoring effectiveness and efficiency of ongoing natural attenuation.

The Bioavailable Ferric Iron Assay measures the amount of ferric iron in soil or sediment that can be reduced to ferrous iron (Fe2+) by iron-reducing bacteria. Bioavailable ferric iron is one indicator of natural attenuation and can be important for other in situ bioremediation technologies such as enhanced anaerobic bioremediation.
