The REGROUND H2020 Project is pleased to present its first corporate video, in which the objectives of this project are explained in a visual and accessible way.
KU LEUVEN, with the collaboration of other REGROUND members such as FSU Jena and University of Duisburg-Essen, recently published a new scientific article detailing technologies developed within the project. TITLE: “Efficient removal of arsenate from oxic contaminated water by colloidal … Continue reading
REGROUND is planning to perform yet another new test application in a new contaminated aquifer. This new test was decided by the consortium after the project meeting in Barcelona, 20-21 September 2017. The aim of this new field application is to … Continue reading
REGROUND consortium, in collaboration with Research Institute of Applied Science (RIAS) in Iran, are testing the proposed technology in a site, where the contamination has a geogenic source. A site has been selected near the city of Takab. RIAS has … Continue reading
After two large-scale applications in Spain and Portugal, groundwater samples were taken for more than 6 months. These samples, along with those collected before the application were analyzed to determine the concentration of the contaminants in liquid phase, and to … Continue reading
At an important meeting held by Society of land recycling and environmental remediation of the state of Nordrhein-Westphalia (AAV), the principal investigator of REGROUND, Prof. Dr. Rainer Meckenstock, introduced REGROUND technology. As an invited speaker, Prof. Dr. Meckenstock explained the … Continue reading
In collaboration with RIAS (Research Institute for Applied Science of ACECR), we apply our technology in a contaminated groundwater site in Iran. The aim of the application is to immobilize the dissolved contaminants (mostly Arsenic) upstream an extraction point. University … Continue reading
