2 Scopus citations


A two-year study in the US has looked at the feasibility of exploiting natural attenuation in the clean-up of contaminated sites. Natural attenuation relies on natural processes to destroy or immobilize hazardous groundwater contaminants. Successful application of natural attenuation requires that the reactions destroy or permanently immobilize contaminants.
