Iron nanoparticles make single sweep of toxic waste

Abstract:
A "universal elixir" brewed from nanoscale technologies is being promoted as a fast, cost-effective way to clean up hazardous waste. The curious marriage of high technology and heavy industry, researchers at Lehigh University said, would attack large-scale toxic wastes with injection wells that employ highly reactive nanoparticles of iron. The slurry would simultaneously neutralize and "fix" in place all known contaminants. (much more on earlier article)
