CARBOSORB - Carbon (Nano) Sorbents for Environmental Remediation
Start date: May 1, 2009,
End date: Apr 30, 2013
The aim of this project is to develop and manufacture permeable composite “filters” in which carbon-rich nanoparticles (or nanoporous materials) will be embedded (and contained in a recyclable 3D structure), and use these as the basis of recyclable, high performance water clean-up devices, for application in the environmental and industrial sectors. It brings together a multidisciplinary consortium of specialists in different areas of environmental (geo)chemistry, nanotechnology, and physical, analytical, synthetic, polymer and surface chemistry, working with a common aim of developing new and efficient methods of contaminant removal from surface and groundwaters, drinking waters, and trade and industrial effluents.
