Anaerobic and chemically induced MTBE degradation

The studies are concerned with anaerobic and chemically induced degradation of methyl tertiary butyl ether (MEBT) in groundwater conduits. The results show that the zeolite materials used, in addition to their activity in acid hydrolysis, have a high adsorption capacity for MTBE. Therefore, a combination of different methods is conceivable for increasing the efficiency of modernising groundwater conduits polluted by MTBE.
