PlumeStop® Liquid Activated
Carbon™ is a new remediation technology, where suspended activated carbon
particles (1-2 µm) are injected in a permeable barrier in the aquifer. The
technology ideally combines rapid sorption of contaminants to the activated
carbon and accelerated biodegradation by bacteria colonizing the activated
DTU Environment is involved in
an ongoing pilot test in collaboration with the Capital Region, Rambøll and
Regensis. A primary aim of the pilot test is to evaluate and document the distribution
of the injected PlumeStop® in the soil matrix. Student projects focusing on different
aspects in connection with the distribution and quantification of PlumeStop® in
the aquifer are possible. The project will have a strong applied component and will
be based on laboratory and/or field work.
Students should preferably have basic experience with experimental work.
