Degradation experiments in controlled conditions

With the aim of improving the ozonation method, IMIDA have carried out more experiments at laboratory scale in controlled conditions. Ozone tests were developed in a glass container (volume 150 L) connected to the small-scale ozone generator. All assays were carried out using a pyrex glass vessels (110 mm long, 80 mm diameter) containing 100 g of two […]

Preliminary experiments with AgRemSO3il small prototype

On August 2018, soil decontamination tests began on a greenhouse located in IMIDA facilities, Murcia. In this initial stage, several treatments were conducted in two different soils contaminated with pesticides in order to evaluate and define the optimal conditions for the remediation technologies involved in the project: ozonation and ozonation in combination with solarization. The ozone was […]
