Is it safe to eat the apples?
A group of
young alternative minded people have turned an old ceramics and roof tile
factory in Western Zealand into a “culture factory”. Through 10 years of hard
work from a large group of volunteers, the factory is now effectively a
showcase for low impact building techniques and it houses concerts, theatre
plays, festivals, people’s kitchens and much more.
Due to the
former usage of the factory, the surrounding area is polluted with heavy metals, and it’s uncertain as to whether the
fruits and berries grown there are safe to eat. This project sets out to
provide an answer to that question through
sampling and analyzing the soil, plants parts and fruits at strategic locations.
the analysis we will do a risk
assessment of the fruits growing near the factory, as well as a general
recommendation for similar sites.
content can be scaled to suit a fagprojekt (preferably 4 students), bachelor
thesis or master thesis. The project can be almost pure field and lab work and it can be combined with modeling.
Some lab experience is prefered. Some knowledge/experience with plants is prefered. Some experience with modeling is prefered.
