The aim of the proposed project is a complex investigation of the use of different iron-based nanomaterials (with preference of novel materials like sulfidised nanoscale zerovalent iron, iron oxide nanoparticles and biochar-nanoiron composite) for the remediation of soil and groundwater contaminated with metal(loid)s from all perspectives, including the ecotoxicological aspect crucial for further practical application in real-world conditions, i.e., starting at the laboratory scale and moving to the field using complex geochemical, hydropedological, reactive-transport modeling and biological approaches. The results will include 2 EU ETV verified technologies and 2 pilot tests for practical applications.
