Further investigations in laboratory and field

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 assess the performance of REGROUND technology in aquifers where the contamination is only present in […]

REGROUND outside Europe

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 prepared the site for application, including drilling new wells and sampling existing wells and springs. […]

Monitoring Completed

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 assess the effectiveness of the application of REGROUND technology in these sites. Filtered and unfiltered […]

REGROUND is performing a pilot-scale application in Iran

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 of Duisburg-Essen (the coordinator of REGROUND project) provides the optimized colloidal nanoparticle suspension as well […]
