Contaminated Land Management

 Contaminated Land Management  

  • Investigation of Pollutant Behaviour in the Environment
  • Ecological and Human Health Risk Assessment
  • Development of Remediation Technologies

Pollutant Behaviour
  • Bioavailability of Organic Pollutants
  • Influence of the Soil Architecture on Retention and Release of Contaminants
  • Influence of the Soil Organic Matter Structure on the Sorption / Desorption of Hydrophobic Organic Contaminants
  • Degradation of Persistent Organic Chemicals in Complex Matrices like Soil

Risk Assessment
  • Ecotoxicological Evaluation of Contaminated Soil
  • Assessment of Acute, Chronic and Genotoxic Effects of Contaminants
  • Toxicity Monitoring of Remediation Measures

  Remediation Technologies
  • In Situ and On Site Remediation Technologies
  • Vadose Zone: Bioventing
  • Saturated Zone: Biosparging, Groundwater Circulation Wells
  • On Site: Biopile Remediation
  • Feasibility Studies
