The selection of target compounds and study sites determines the further development of the project. The sites are chosen to reflect a set of contaminants that are common in contaminated soil.
The list of target contaminants:

-    Tetrachloroethylene (PCE)
-    Trichloroethylene (TCE)
-    Hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH)
-    Nitrocontaining compounds (e.g. TNT)
-    Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs)

The research has received funding from the European Community's Seventh.
Framework Programme FP7/(2009-2012) under grant agreement no 212781.
