Project Details

Description

Electrodialytic soil remediation is an innovative technique, which has been developing since the beginning of the nineties. An electric current is applied to the contaminated soil, and the pollutants are transported by different mechanisms towards the electrodes.
To improve the efficiency of the method this research project is focusing on the electromigration of ionic species: by introducing ion exchange membranes in the process some unfavorable effects may be excluded.
The project is carried out in collaboration with A/S Bioteknisk Jordrens
