WP2 Tailored carrier/bacteria technology for rehabilitation of areas with pesticide-containing pollution

AQUAREHAB will develop semi-passive-remediation technologies based on “smart” carriers to protect heavily contaminated ground water bodies. This includes developing and testing in the laboratory and field:

  • biodegrading biofilms to eliminate pesticides in passing water;
  • solutions to mitigate effects of co-pollutants on biodegradation


Open trench where tailored bacteria/carrier materials will be introduced for semi-passive treatment of drained pesticide-containing water.
