The overarching aim of the EU project NANOREM (Taking Nanotechnological Remediation Processes from Lab Scale to End User Applications for the Restoration of a Clean Environment) is to support and develop the appropriate use of nanotechnology for contaminated land and brownfield remediation and management in Europe, focusing on facilitating the practical, economic and exploitable nanotechnology for insitu remediation. The aim of the Manchester-based part of the project is to develop novel nano-scale biomineral phases for in situ remediation of metal and organic pollutants.  We are also involved in determining the impact of nanoparticles on microbial community structure and functions, and developing novel techniques to monitor nanoparticle mobility.
