The applications of NANOFER products

Nanoparticles of α-Fe have recently become a strategic material with great application potential in the broad range of modern nanotechnologies. Due to their extraordinary reduction capabilities, small size in the range of several tens of nanometers and high reactivity with a broad spectrum of toxic substances, these ultrafine particles are highly applicable in the reduction technologies of groundwater remediation and waste water treatment. In comparison with other frequently used procedures for water treatment, the treatment exploiting of Fe(0) nanoparticles represents environmentally friendly technology since non-toxic and nature-abundant iron oxides (mainly magnetite - Fe3O4) are the products of transformation of Fe(0).
