MCN- Northern Sweden Soil Remediation Center
Dioxin removal from contaminated soils by ethanol washing PDF Print E-mail
Written by Sofia Jonsson   
Friday, 21 May 2010 14:01
New article published  in Journal of Hazardous Materials by Sofia Jonsson, Umeå University MCN.
The aim of this study was to investigate the potential utility of ethanol washing for remediating soils contaminated
with polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs) and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs),
as a cost-efficient alternative to conventional remediation methods of PCDD/F-contaminated soils.

New article to be be published in 2010, Journal of Hazardous Materials. Title: Heavy metals concentrations and toxicity in water and sediment from storwater pounds and sedimentation tanks Abstract Sedimentation is a widely used technique in structural best management practices to remove pollutants from stormwater. However, concerns have been expressed about the environmental impacts that may be exerted by the trapped pollutants.

Project proposal GLOCOM submitted to the EU FP7 Marie Curie IRSES, received high scores in the evaluation and has been selected for final negotiations with the EU ERA. The project will most likely be awarded and can be expected to start in first quarter of 2011.
University Ca’ Foscari of Venice, Umeå University (MCN), Bejing Normal University and CRAES (China Research Academy of Environmental Science), submitted the proposal GLOCOM (Global Partners in Contaminated Land Management) to the EU FP7 Call People 2010- IRSES in March 2010. GLOCOM is plannned as a 4-year program for exchange of 36 researchers for a total of 188 months, with research to focus on fate of contaminants, risk assessment and management of contaminated sites. MCN director Professor Mats Tysklind is very pleased and excited by the news. - We view GLOCOM as a long-term strategic investment in research collaboration on the management of contaminated sites for China and Europe.
