The article, which featured in the first issue of 2015, focuses on the statistics behind groundwater contamination from methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) and tert-butyl alcohol (TBA), the reasons why they need to be removed and the cost-effective and low-energy benefits of the new method. It follows a press release at the end of 2014 announcing that, with its industrial partners Punch Metals NV and Xeramics International NV, RSK now has a global franchise for this new technology and related services from VITO and can offer MTBE and TBA remediation service worldwide.
