IDP participates in the SCENARIOS project funded by the EU and framed in the “H2020-LC-GD-2020-3” call of the Building a low-carbon Horizon 2020 Framework Program.
SCENARIOS, “Strategies for health protection, pollution Control and Elimination of Next generAtion RefractIve Organic chemicals from the Soil, vadose zone and water” has a budget of 11.9 million euros over 4 years and his objective is to devise and demonstrate a comprehensive set of state-of-the-art technological solutions and strategies for the detection, quantification, control and elimination of PFASs from soil.
SCENARIOS will design a set of solutions to control and remediate contamination of drinking water, agricultural soil and groundwater contaminated with PFAS. All these solutions will be in line with the principle of green chemistry, zero energy, sustainability and circular economy.
The project aims to significantly improve human health and ecosystem protection by creating a knowledge base beyond the effects and exposure to PFASs in unprecedented detail, using molecular systems biology, toxicogenomics and phenotypic screening, supported by bioinformatics and chemoinformatics.
SCENARIOS solutions will be implemented in 4 cases in operating EU industrial sites and in a public health institution. The activities carried out shall present industrial and social results in which the measuring of pollutants and health monitoring provide an excellent environment for the implementation of the Green Deal.
The project involves a consortium of 19 top level European companies and institutions from Spain, Greece, Italy, Israel, Luxembourg, Germany, Cyprus, Finland, the United Kingdom, Sweden and Denmark.
