Objectives

1. - Setting-up of compact technologies for the quick decontamination of marine and fluvial sediments contaminated by hydrocarbons and other organic substances (PCBs, pesticides, etc.) having a relevant impact on human health and on ecosystems in waterfront areas

2. Utilization of technologies that do not use solvents and/or harmful chemical/biological compounds which could diffuse in the environment at the end of the treatment phase.

3. Development of technologies that are easy to transport and to install at contaminated sites, in order to allow a rapid and effective intervention.

4. Development and diffusion of “green chemistry” technologies in the field of contaminated land reclamation.
