Severe shortage in good quality water reserves is a global problem that will increase with a growing world population. Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) will contribute to replenish depleted aquifers. However, there are risks associated to the occurrence of pathogens and emerging pollutants in groundwater. MARadentro aims to assess and minimize these risks, and to increase the benefits of MAR guaranteeing human health and environment protection through the development of affordable and effective permeable reactive layers. The transfer of the knowledge to policy makers will also help in EU regulation on MAR.
