The Groundwater Engineering research group of Politecnico di Torino is led by Prof. Rajandrea Sethi, full professor of Groundwater Engineering and Head of the Department of Environment, Land and Infrastructure Engineering (DIATI).
Our theoretical and applied research activity is focused on:
The group participates in many research projects, financed by the Ministry of University and Research (MIUR), the National Research Council (CNR) and by Regional Government. It is a partner of NANOREM and REGROUND European research projects, both aiming at transferring aquifer remediation technologies from lab scale to field scale. It is also partner of the GRETA project, funded by the EU INTERREG Alpine Space program, aiming at fostering the diffusion of Ground Source Heat Pumps in the Alpine regions. The group is committed in multiple researches dealing with environmental monitoring, such as the groundwater monitoring of the building sites of the MOSE Project in Venice. The Groundwater Engineering Research Group also participated in the realization of the first permeable reactive barrier using zero-valent iron in Italy. Intense research and activities of the group are reported in many national and international scientific publications.
