1. IN-SITU MONITORING OF PFASs
Development of new methods and protocols for the proper monitoring of PFASs in the water environment.
Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) that is based on the utilization of appropriately functionalized Magnetic Nanoparticles will be used for in-situ monitoring of PFASs.
2. CAPTURE AND DECOMPOSITION OF PFASs
Functionalized Magnetic Sponges exhibiting high surface area and high selectivity will be used for the treatment of contaminated groundwater and process water.
The adsorbent magnetic sponges
will be regenerated using appropriate solvents in order to be used again.
The captured PFASs on the
surface of Magnetic Sponges will
be treated with Electrochemical
Advanced Oxidation Process
technology for their complete
3. DEMONSTRATION ACTIVITIES
Two treatment plants based on Magnetic Sponges technology will be installed and with several monitoring points throughout the process, in order to eliminate PFASs from the contaminated aquifer water stream and from treated process wastewater.
