This training presents a very effective strategy that communities, companies and governments should know and apply to increase protection standards against radioactive pollution in water. Algae are a good solution.
- How to use some useful algal species in order to remove radioactive contamination from the water
- How to setup a strategy shared between communities and companies in order to increase results
- How to generate a significant amount of new health and clean energy from the application of used biomass
During this training you’ll learn the collection and the subsequent application of some algal species as a great solution to remove pollution by radioactive materials. Moreover, this solution allows to generate new healthy energy if some guidelines are strictly followed. Among algae can be used to achieve great results, there are Laminaria and Padina (and others). The list is constantly growing, so it’s important to stay updated. These algae often present different properties, thus making them applicable or not applicable depending on changing conditions. This applies to the potential energy generation as well. A good opportunity, which requires the utmost care.
Radioactive contamination of waterways can be addressed in different natural ways. However, is the application of a very specific alcohol is highly suggested for groundwaters, this solution applies best for surface waters and streams. In fact, the very specific properties of some selected algal species you can learn in this training allow to adsorb and remove from the water these so harmful pollutants.
Moreover, such algae can be re-used for several cycles of remediation. Then polluting materials can be recovered and (possibly) recycled for other energy purposes.
After the completion of remediation cycles, spent biomass becomes a valuable raw material for energy generation through various processes, the composting first.
The most appropriate algal species you must know and collect in order to apply this simple but really effective solution; please note however that although simple, the proposed solution presents some mandatory steps to follow and the risk of unwanted effects remains high (in case of mistakes during the application of this process).
The importance of setting up a shared strategy, with the deep involvement of companies and communities as well; this is important because very often pollutants affect communities living in the surrounding areas, so their involvement is required to double the protection level.
The opportunity to generate new natural and “free” energy with the use of the very same algae applied for removing radioactive pollution from the water; this is really an asset, because a single material allows to achieve two extremely important goals.
This live training focuses the attention on water polluted by radioactive materials (mainly surface waters and streams) and belongs to the bigger framework called “Remedial Energy For Nuclear Power”. This very special framework is aimed creating natural barriers to radioactive contamination, towards a better protection standards for both energy companies and potentially affected communities. For this particular training, basically everyone can really benefit from that: from the people up to nuclear power plants and policymakers. By applying the proposed guidelines, there is in fact the true opportunity to increase the standard of protection for communities over time.
If you wish, there is the chance of ordering a customized handbook that covers more deeply a specific issue related to other opportunities for obtaining the very same goal. The identification of different algal types is also possible; this because native species are always to be preferred to avoid unwanted effects to the biodiversity of the area.
