How to reduce in situ the concentration of nitrates in groundwater?

Still don’t know the LIFE Nirvana technology? Damián Sánchez, project manager of Cetaqua Andalucía, explains in detail in this video how the technology works to reduce the concentration of nitrates in groundwater in situ. 

This project aims to eliminate nitrates using zerovalent iron nanoparticles that achieve optimal conditions in the aquifer for bacteria that convert nitrates into nitrogen gas.

“In this way, we achieve a net reduction of nitrate in the aquifer”, says Damián Sánchez. If you want to know more about how to denitrify groundwater without the need to extract and treat it, don’t miss this video.

The project, led by Cetaqua Andalucía with the participation of Aguas de Murcia (EMUASA) and Aquatec, is co-funded by the LIFE Programme of the European Commission.
