Contaminated sites: characterization and remediation

Working Group
Polluted sites characterization
Characterization of contamination of soils and groundwater in polluted sites, risk assessment and development of calculation tools for sensitivity analyses and migration models for contaminants (Visual Basic, Mathcad). In-situ measurement of vapor emissions and comparison with volatilization models
Solidification/stabilization of contaminants in soil.
Aim of the research work is to evaluate the possibility of immobilizing contaminants on the solid matrix by means of binder addition. Moreover, multi-criteria analyses to identify the best remediation solution are applied to select in-situ/on-site techniques.
