Migration of zero valent iron in the subsurface is a task solved in the long term from different points of view at many workplaces. Experimental equipment in these workplaces mostly enables only one-dimensional assignments (laboratory columns) to be studied in different orders with various levels of detection of migrant substances. The 2- and 3-dimension experimental equipment from the VEGAS research facility, University of Stuttgart with large scale dimensions of approximately 1m x 0.12m x 0.7m and 8m x 1m x 3m (L x W x H) enables the migration and interaction of nanoiron particles to be studied in a homogeneous artificially created aquifer under conditions approaching the real conditions of a contaminated site. The whole experiment is linked to the international research project NANOREM, which aims to show that the application of nanoparticles is a useful and in particular reliable method for remediation of contaminated soil and groundwater.Keywords: Nanoiron particles, injection of nanoparticles, transport and targeted deposition of nanoparticles in the subsurface, interaction of nanoiron particles with contaminants
