New collaborative research on electrokinetic-enhanced bioremediation of contaminated soil and groundwater
The project, which starts in October 2011, includes researchers from the University of Cardiff and will examine the fundamental processes and potential for use of electrokinesis as a sustainable concept for in situ remediation of organic contaminants in soil and groundwater, using bench-scale model systems.
Key areas of interest include the effect of system design, physical setting and environmental conditions on treatment performance.
The project will consider microbiological and geochemical processes involved in the treatment and aims to provide engineering design guidelines for the application of this novel remediation concept.
