Phosphate Induced Metal Stabilization

using Apatite II


About Apatite II

Phosphate-Induced Metal Stabilization (PIMS) is a technology that uses a special material, Apatite II, to clean-up soil and groundwater contaminated with metals. PIMS stabilizes a wide range of metals, especially lead (Pb), uranium (U), plutonium (Pu), zinc (Zn) and cadmium (Cd), either in place or after removal from the ground. PIMS works by chemically binding the metals into new minerals that do not dissolve or leach over geologic time periods, millions of years. After treatment, the metals are no longer bioavailable. This method has many applications in the field including:
