Kick-off meeting with the whole team! We are all enthusiast to start developing new technologies that will enable the extraction of heavy metal ions from water and soil. The project focuses on developing nanocomposite aimed to be used for water and soil remediation. With these technologies wastewater and contaminated soil can become resources through the recycling of exhausted nanocomposites (circular economy). The goal is understand the extraction mechanism and to have prototype ready for the purification of well water and an on-going pilot test at the end of the project.
