CL:AIRE is presently undertaking a research project on behalf on Defra titled “A risk/benefit approach to the application of iron nanoparticles for the remediation
of contaminated sites in the environment”, supported by r3 Environmental Technology Ltd (UK), The University of Nottingham (UK), Deltares (Netherlands)
and Geosyntec (USA).
As part of this project and in collaboration with the U.S. EPA's CLU-IN initiative, a webinar took place on the 14th December (15:00 - 17:15 GMT).
The purpose of this webinar was to hear presentations from some nano-remediation projects where nano scale zero valent iron has been used as a remediation
technique in a practical way. Presentations will discuss the context of the application, the risk management problem being addressed, the practical delivery
and use of the technology, the regulatory approval process, and the project outcomes and ongoing monitoring. In particular a focus of the webinar was to consider
the risks versus the benefits of iron nano-particle use for remediation.
