NanoRem (Taking Nanotechnological Remediation Processes from Lab Scale to End User Applications for the Restoration of a Clean Environment) is a research project, funded through the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme. NanoRem focuses on facilitating practical, safe, economic and exploitable nanotechnology for in situ remediation of polluted soil and groundwater.
Part of the project is to understand the future promise of iron nanoparticles/nanoscale zero valent iron (nZVI) use in remediation as a remediation technology and to understand more about stakeholders thoughts and knowledge of the technology and its future opportunities.
NanoRem’s initial findings have been summarised in a short report which was made available at the end of April. NanoRem is interested to collect additional opinions from different practitioners and stakeholders. In order to do this NanoRem has created a short questionnaire where they would greatly value stakeholders input which is based on the initial report.
The report can be downloaded here. (This report is based on part on a detailed risk-benefit appraisal contained in "NanoRem IDL9.4".)
If you would like to complete the questionnaire please click here. The consultation closes end of September 2015.
