Research activity: 
"Combined chemical-physical and biological processes for groundwater remediation" Groundwater contamination is one of the most relevant problems in the protection of the drinking water resources. The sustainable recovery of water contaminated by a complex spectrum of chemical compounds requires the development of combined processes able to use physical-chemical and biological mechanisms. The research includes the development of: processes and materials for the removal of chlorinated organic contaminants from contaminated groundwater by means of reductive processes and development of adsorbent materials for the removal of contaminants arising from petrochemical activities.
