Water and Soil Clean-up from Mixed Contaminants

Objective

This project aims to develop novel materials and technologies for remediation of contaminated soils and groudwaters from xenobiotics (e.g. man-made) contaminants, via a programme of knowledge exchange and scientific work actions between 8 partner organisations (6 from three EU countries and 2 from an ICPC country). Chemical and biological approaches will be combined to develop novel technologies for removal of toxic metals/metalloids and recalcitrant organic contaminants from contaminated soil and groundwaters. A range of methods, based on iron chemistry and biogeochemistry, bioremediation and electrochemical oxidation will be employed at laboratory and pilot/field scale, to produce integrated clean-up solutions for problem contaminated sites and contaminants. The project brings together a multidisciplinary consortium of specialists from different areas of contaminated land management, environmental (geo)chemistry, nanotechnology, (geo)microbiology and physical, analytical, synthetic, polymer and surface chemistry, working with a common aim of developing new and efficient methods of contaminant removal from soils, and groundwaters.
