    • Activation process of air stable nanoscale zero-valent iron particles 

      Ribas Fargas, David; Cernik, M.; Benito Páramo, José Antonio; Filip, J.; Martí Gregorio, Vicenç (2017-07-15)
      Article
      Open Access
      Nanoscale Zero Valent Iron (nZVI) represents a promising material for subsurface water remediation technology. However, dry, bare nZVI particles are highly reactive, being pyrophoric when they are in contact with air. The ...
    • High reactive nano zero-valent iron produced via wet milling through abrasion by alumina 

      Ribas Fargas, David; Pešková, Kristýna; Jubany, Irene; Parma, Pert; Cernik, M.; Benito Páramo, José Antonio; Martí Gregorio, Vicenç (2019-06-15)
      Article
      Open Access
      The performance of new nano zero-valent iron (nZVI) particles produced by a promising new milling method in organic solvent was examined. The basic feature of the new process involves the addition of abrasive alumina ...
    • Improvements in nanoscale zero-valent iron production by milling through the addition of alumina 

      Ribas Fargas, David; Cernik, M.; Martí Gregorio, Vicenç; Benito Páramo, José Antonio (2016-06-02)
      Article
      Open Access
      A new milling procedure for a cost-effective production of nanoscale zero-valent iron for environmental remediation is presented. Conventional ball milling of iron in an organic solvent as Mono Ethylene Glycol produces ...
    • In situ groundwater remediation treatments : natural denitrification study and nano zero valent iron production 

      Ribas Fargas, David (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-03-14)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      Freshwater is a scarce resource, threatened by an ongoing pollution, global climate change and industrialization. Among other freshwater sources, groundwater is by far the most important source of usable freshwater but due ...
    • Subsurface nitrate reduction under wetlands takes place in narrow superficial zones 

      Ribas Fargas, David; Calderer, Montserrat; Martí Gregorio, Vicenç; Johnsen, A.R.; Aamand, Jens; Nilsson, B.; Jensen, J. K.; Engesgaard, P.; Morici, C. (2017-01-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      This study aims to investigate the depth distribution of the Nitrate Reduction Potential (NRP) on a natural and a re-established wetland. The obtained NRP provides a valuable data of the driving factors affecting ...
