Strategies for health protection, pollution Control and Elimination of Next generAtion RefractIve Organic chemicals from the Soil, vadose zone and water (SCENARIOS)
The Institute of Chemical Engineering Sciences of the Foundation for Research & Technology – Hellas (FORTH/ICE-HT), located in Patras, Greece, is partner in the recently funded H2020 project Scenarios (101037509), with total budget of 12 million Euros, aiming at the development of cutting-edge technologies and strategies for detection, quantification, control, and elimination of PFAS from soil, vadose zone and water by pursuing outcomes within the 4 remediation quadrants: In-situ soil, In-situ water, Ex-situ soil and Ex-situ water. Likewise, the project devises a set of pollution control and remediation solutions for PFAS-contaminated drinking water, agricultural soil and groundwater.
The SCENARIOS consortium is composed of 19 organizations from 10 European countries (Italy, Spain, Greece, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Luxembourg, United Kingdom, Cyprus) and one extra- EU country (Israel). It is a well-balanced consortium with both relevant expertise in European Research and Innovation Activity and a strong presence and knowledge in both the public and private sectors (Università del Piemonte Orientale –coordinator, FORTH/ICE-HT, German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, between others).
Principal Investigator for FORTH/ICE-HT is Dr. G. Voyatzis. The teams of Dr. Ch. Tsakiroglou, Dr. Ch. Aggelopoulos and Assoc. Prof K. Andrikopoulos are also participating in the project.
