Water Quality

Nanotechnology for a Safe and Sustainable use of Water Resources

We work on overcoming some of the most challenging issues in water environment making responsible use of the great opportunities that nanotechnology offers. The Water Quality research group focuses in three main activities:

  • Nanotech-based sensors for water quality monitoring; we fully develop portable and/or remote biosensors for water biological and chemical contaminants.
  • Nanomaterials for water contaminants capture; we design, fabricate and test nanomaterials for the selective capture of water chemical contaminants.
  • (Eco) nanotoxicology; we develop and carry out methods for evaluating nanomaterials’ fate, bioaccumulation and toxicity. Special emphasis in implementing the safety-by-design concept to the in house produced nanomaterials.

ONGOING RESEARCH PROJECTS

New systems for water contaminants capture are being explored by means of novel tailored nanomaterials. On the other hand, biosensing devices are developed and/or tailored to detect and quantify the presence of water contaminants such as biotoxins, pathogens and invasive species.

Nanoporous COFs as modulable platforms for monitoring and analysis of pollutants in marine environment. The main objective of the COFsMEM project is the immobilization of highly accessible porous COFs onto solid substrates that can be implemented in Solid Phase Extraction modules for the selective adsorption of pollutants in the marine environment, such as biotoxins.

NANOEATERS is a network of Research Centers created with the objective of supporting Euroregional “early adopters” companies in the application of new nanotechnology-based solutions. Companies, Universities and Technology Centers will work together with INL in the definition of new nano-based commercially available products and /or services. The technologies targeted by the project will offer effective responses to the weaknesses detected in the cross border Smart Specialization Strategy (S3) Galicia – Northern Portugal, contributing to major social challenges as Health, Environmental Monitoring, Food Safety, Energy Efficiency or Industry 4.0

Advanced web tools for enhancing the implementation of nanotechnology and the safe use of nanomaterials in the plastic industrial sector

PREVIOUS PROJECTS
