reground aims at restoring contaminated groundwater aquifers
by developing a novel technology for the injection of iron oxide nanoparticles into groundwater contaminant plumes. This project addresses mainly arsenic and the known major groundwater contaminants (barium, cadmium, chromium, copper, lead, mercury, nickel, zinc).
The goal of this project is to create a market-ready application to transform the efforts to mitigate the risks posed by toxic metal contaminations to humans and ecosystems.
Regound will enable immobilization of toxic metal contaminations at sites which are currently left untreated due to technical or economic reasons. To that end, the communication and dissemination strategy will concentrate on persuading the stakeholders that this project could offer a new opportunity in terms of sustainability and also have a positive impact on society.
