Isotope application for remediation, aftercare and monitoring of contaminated sites (ISOMON)
Funded by
Amt der Niederösterreichischen Landesregierung, Landhausplatz 1, A-3109 St. Pölten, Austria
ISOMON aims to develop and adapt innovative isotope
methods for their use in monitoring of in-situ
remediation of different kinds of contaminations. To
this end application scenarios for isotope methods
will be developed and tested based on selected
remediation technologies for organic contaminants on
landfills and former industrial sites. Through
comparison of the achieved results to those measured
with conventional methods the novel monitoring
applications will be validated. Isotope methods will
ideally allow for the detailed analysis of contaminant
fate and behaviour in the environment and thus
contribute to the conception of meaningful measures
for the management of contaminated sites. The newly
developed knowledge will further be shared with
SMEs offering services related to soil remediation and
strengthen their market position and
