Heavy metal pollution is one of the most important environmental problems threatening human life as these metals are bioaccumulative and pose a health hazard. A large number of industries produce and discharge waste containing different heavy metals into the environment.
BIOMETAL DEMO project will address the problem of polluted water with heavy metals through the development of novel technologies that will be applied to contaminating facilities. The preliminary research phase comprises four main research areas related to bioprecipitation and biosorption. During the demonstration phase, the techniques will be scaled-up and three demonstration pilot plants will be designed and built up.
