Phy2Climate’s first congress in Spain
Litoclean has guided the visit to the Tarragona pilot project in which it participates
The European Phy2Climate project has met in person for the first time after a year and a half of virtual meetings. The chosen place has been Barcelona, specifically the headquarters of Leitat in Terrassa, in which the different participating entities have been able to exchange impressions and results of the first phase of the work. In this congress, has been made a visit to the pilot project located in Tarragona, and in which Litoclean participates.
Phy2Climate evaluates the soil's decontamination capacity through phytoremediation and the subsequent use of crops to produce biofuel. For this, five phytoremediation pilots are carried out in Spain, Serbia, Lithuania and Argentina.
Litoclean's role as a technological and research partner consists of managing and characterizing the pilot plot on industrial land located in Tarragona, as well as advising on the technical specifications of phytoremediation and plant trials.
Currently the pilot test has completed the first phase, in which the species that will achieve phytoremediation have been selected, and has begun the study period of the first plantation. In this phase, Litoclean will maintain and study the species planted and will collect the plant material that is produced, so that it can be treated in future phases of the research.
This project is part of the H2020 strategy of the European Union and is aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals and the Circular Economy.
