Exploration of the possible applications of some promising materials and techniques to remove contaminants from aqueous solutions

  • Description of the research topic

    It is widely known that the presence of some ionic contaminants in water and wastewater causes serious environmental and health problems. In contrast to e.g. neutral organic contaminants, which can undergo biodegradation as a result of the activity of soil microorganisms or abiotic factors, giving less toxic, less mobile and/or less bioavailable products strongly adsorbed onto fine particles, and in micropores of various soils or minerals, many ionic pollutants remain in the environment, and their speciation and bioavailability might change over time. They can enter the food chain and accumulate in living organisms. Pure water is a globally significant commodity. To this end, specific instances in which water purification is important include environmental remediation, industrial processes and, critically, water for human consumption. The main objective of the research is to develop new methods and to investigate the application possibilities of some promising materials and techniques (e.g. ferrate treatment, electrocoagulation, conductive polymers and polymer composites, etc.) to remove contaminants from aqueous solutions.
