TerraNova - Controlled environment biopiling for contaminated land treatment
Start date of the project:
End date of the project:
Contaminated land treatment is fundamentally a low technology business involving bulldozers and diggers. Because of this an under lying objective is to provide a low technology, robust process, with robust on line monitoring and control, which can be used by unsophisticated SME's. The TerraNova project's objective was to cleanup contaminated soil in a closed safe and efficient fashion. It will therefore help quickly to reduce human exposure to harmful chemicals and pollutant and improve the quality of life and health for European citizens. The technology development of this project was not completed. However, a report was produced: Summary Report on Technical and Legal Barriers for the Introduction of Ex-Situ Biological Soil Treatment Excavated Contaminated Soil in the EU Member States.
