Water and Soil Clean-up from Mixed Contaminants

INESS 2017 & 4th Workshop on Water and Soil Clean-up
from Mixed Contaminants

REGISTRATION OPEN

 

Project of European Union FP7-People-IAPP-WaSClean-612250 „Water and Soil Clean-up from Mixed Contaminants“ aims to stimulate intersectoral collaboration to develop and scale-up comprehensive technology for the remediation of contaminated land from representative heavy metals (e.g. Pb, As, Cr, Cd, Hg), persistent organic pollutants (lindane, atrazine, obsolete pesticides), and synthetic dyes (reactive blue, red, black from textile industry).

The project covers developing novel Fe/Cu/carbon clean-up devices, as well as utilizing sulfate-reducing, sulphur-oxidizing and iron-and-sulphur-oxidizing bacteria as well as advanced oxidation techniques for treatment of contaminated land and waters.
