TAKING NANOTECHNOLOGICAL REMEDIATION PROCESSES FROM LAB SCALE TO END USER APPLICATIONS FOR THE RESTORATION OF A CLEAN ENVIRONMENT: PROJECT FINAL REPORT
NanoRem: Nanotechnology for Contaminated Land Remediation, 162 pp, 2017

From January 2013 through January 2017 the NanoRem research project, funded through the European Commission FP7, focused on facilitating practical, safe, economic, and exploitable nanotechnology for in situ remediation. Technology development and transfer was undertaken in parallel with developing a comprehensive understanding of the environmental risk-benefit for the use of nanoparticles (NPs), market demand, overall sustainability, and stakeholder perceptions. The project introduced a variety of remediation NPs, which are described in this report. All the NPs were intensively tested and optimized with respect to mobility and reactivity in column experiments, and two—Carbo-Iron® and Nano-Goethite—were used in large-scale studies at different field sites. In the course of its NP studies, NanoRem also developed analytical methods and field measurement devices, numerical tools, and technical guidelines. https://cordis.europa.eu/docs/results/309/309517/final1-final-report.pdf
