Horizon2020 Marie Curie Initial Training Network "Metal Oxide Aided Subsurface Remediation: From Invention to Injection – MetalAid". (2016 - 2020)
Metal Aid aims to test, validate and further develop new mineral-based technologies that can be used to decontaminate soils and groundwaters. The MetalAid network will consist of 14 interdisciplinary geochemical and mineralogical research projects that will focus on layered double hydroxides (LDHs) and redox-active green rust (GR) phases for immobilizing toxic metals and degrading chlorinated compounds.
Two PhD students work in section 4.4 in the framework of Metal Aid and do research on the following two topics.
Sandra Navaz Rubio works on "The effect of green rust compositions and structures on trace metal reduction".
Jeffrey Paulo H. Perez works on "Kinetics, rates and interfacial reactivities of GR materials".
