In-situ iron detector

Within AQAUREHAB, USTUTT was responsible for the development of in‐situ measuring technologies for ZVI particles in the subsurface. Such a tool could be useful to localise the ZVI particles in the subsurface after an injection event. The development was based upon the measurement of electromagnetic susceptibility, a technology employed for example in mine detection devices of the military. The steps followed in the development of the technology were:

  • Adapted mine sweeper in 1D experiment;
  • New sensors in a 3 D flow regime;
  • Rece-Track-Sensors for down-hole use in the field.

Further demonstration & improvement is ongoing via follow-up projects, comprising the German NAPASAN project, FP7 project NANOREM project.
