For in situ remediation of groundwater contaminated by halogenated hydrocarbons Carbo-Iron®, a composite of microscale activated carbon and nano Fe0, was developed. Against the background of the intended release of Carbo-Iron into the environment in concentrations in the g/L-range, potential ecotoxicological consequences were evaluated in the present study
Effects of the nanomaterial titanium dioxide NM-105 were studied in a sediment/water system with Lumbriculus variegatus according to OECD test guideline 225. Test media were prepared by mixing NM105 suspensions and the sediment-overlying water. Nominal test concentrations were confirmed by chemical analysis of Ti concentrations in the test media. Effects of titanium dioxide (NM-105) were […]
In the project ‘Iron-based nanoparticles and nanocomposite structures for removal of contaminants from groundwater and sewage’ (Fe-Nanosit), Carbo-Iron®, a nanocomposite for remediation of contaminated groundwater and Pd-doted magnetite and magnetite-zeolith for treatment of industrial wastewater were developed. Since no data on ecotoxicity of these particles were available, ecotoxicity of the nanocomposites was investigated using standard […]
ECT Oekotoxikologie GmbH was founded as a privately owned, independent enterprise in 1993, and joined the SynTech Research Group in November 2021.
In compliance with Good Laboratory Practice (GLP), we perform standardised ecotoxicological tests in the laboratory as well as at semi-field and field level.
