This patent application claims a method of manufacturing a remediation material by providing a biogentic material as a substrate, preparing the surface of the substrate for a chemical reaction, and performing template-driven surface derivitization on the surface of the substrate to provide a reactive surface of the substrate for sorption of chemical species or sorption and degradation of chemical species. The remediation material may be placed into contact with surface water, ground water, soil, or sediment by at least one permeable reactive barrier, direct introduction of the material into soil or sediment, to remove contaminants from the surface water, ground water, soil, or sediment.
