Permeable Reactive Barriers | Cut Off & Barriers | Keller UK

Permeable Reactive Barriers

Our Permeable Reactive Barriers (PRB), are used to clean contaminated ground water. We have installed these at more than 80 sites worldwide and installed the first ever UK PRB. The PBR is a treatment zone of reactive material built underground and can take many forms such as activated carbon for absorption of organics, ion exchange resins for metals, zero valent iron for halogens, sand beds with nutrient and oxygen addition to promote microbial degradation to mention a few.

Coupled with other techniques such as slurry walls and grouting we have the expertise and capability to address complex contamination problems. PRB’s have numerous advantages, they are installed underground thus preventing human contact with the contaminates, they do not require on-going energy to function, they are invisible after installation and low maintenance.
