MetalRem

About the project:

The project aims to comprehensively investigate the use of different iron-based nanomaterials, with the preference of novel materials, such as sulfidated nanoscale zerovalent iron or iron oxide nanoparticles, for the remediation of soil and groundwater contaminated with metal(loid)s from all perspectives, including the ecotoxicological aspect, which is crucial for further practical pplication in real-world conditions. The project has started at the laboratory scale and moved to field applications, using complex geochemical, hydropedological, reactive-transport modeling and biological approaches. The results will include 2 EU ETV verified technologies and 2 pilot tests for practical applications.
