Towards a better understanding of the transport processes of nanoparticles and nanoplastics in porous media
Adsorption on mineral surfaces in porous media is considered as one of the most important processes controlling the fate and transport of nanomaterials both in the natural environment and conventional filtration systems. This project relies on numerical models and laboratory experiments to assess the mechanisms and the impact of porous media on the transport and transformation of manufactured nanoparticles.
