Drinking Water Treatment Residuals as Material for in-situ Capping of Metal Contaminated Sediments

Project: Research project

Project Details


The work that will be performed at Northwestern, within the context of the above referred proposal, consists in the investigation of the coordinative environment of metals – Cu, Cd, Hg, and Zn - sorbed to drinking water treatment residuals and the laboratory study of the release of these metals from capped sediments. In addition, the group will perform a structural study of the material and its evolution during use and assess the bioavailability of metals using prokaryotic biosensors.
