Addressing the research needs for the sustainable application of TDA (Tire Derived Aggregate) in stormwater infiltration/treatment

A recent investigation by the principal investigator's (PI’s) team on the applicability of two inch tire derived aggregate (TDA) for stormwater treatment has shown good phosphate retention, but with substantial leaching of zinc and some copper. The overall objective of this proposal is to develop a system of media that will utilize the phosphate retaining characteristic of TDA while reducing zinc and copper release.
