Science in big-scale
During the last week of June, the first test injections were carried out in the REGROUND pilot sites in Asturias, Spain and Lisbon, Portugal.
REGROUND in the KIMConference 2016
First batch of large-scale nanoparticles for remediation of heavy metals in groundwater are being produced in UDE. These particles are planned to be injected in next two weeks in two fields (Spain and Portugal). In total, ca. 60 cubic meters of nanoparticle suspension will be used in this step, to evaluate the efficiency (performance) of […]
