Project name:TARANTO - Technology And pRocesses for the Abatement of pollutaNts and the remediation of conTaminated sites with raw materials recovery and production of energy tOtally green.
ICMATE involved researchers:
Starting date, ending date and duration:March, 1st, 2018 - August, 31st, 2020 (30 months)
Project funding:Ministero dell’Istruzione, dell’Università e della Ricerca. PON research project, Research and Innovation 2014-2020 Application cod. ARS01_00637.
The project aims at the development of an ensemble of technologies suitable to generate renewable energy, and consequently achieve remediation effects in the polluted environmental compartments, thus favouring circular economy and decarbonization practices. The proposed innovative technologies intend to promote efficiency, transforming wastes (waste water, sludge, biomass from remediation) in renewable energy sources, stimulating a profound reconsideration of how to produce and use energy and doing business.
The role of ICMATE-CNR unit can be resumed in the following points:
- Synthesis and characterization of TiO2-based nanostructured photocatalysts for pollutants degradation in water matrix
- Investigation of the photocatalytic properties of synthetized nanomaterials
- Preparation of catalysts supported on solid matrices
- Chemical-physical characterization
