  • LITOCLEAN is involved in a European R+D+i project on phytoremediation

    The Phy2Climate project aims at recovering polluted soils by means of phytoremediation and using these crops for advanced biofuel production.

    February 12th 2021

    The European Commission has launched Phy2Climate, a project to evaluate the capacity of soil decontamination through phytoremediation. This initiative is part of the H2020 strategy of the European Union lead by INEA (Innovation and Networks Executive Agency) and has 17 partners from 10 different countries with a solid interdisciplinary experience in the fields of project management, remediation and phytoremediation of soils, advanced biofuel technologies, environmental and social sustainability, and legal analysis. LITOCLEAN is one of the technological and research partners of the project thanks to its extensive knowledge on soil remediation and its firm commitment to R+D+i.

    The Phy2Climate project aims to validate five phytoremediation pilots in Spain, Serbia, Lithuania, Argentina and India. Phytoremediation is a technique that uses the ability of some plants to absorb contaminants present in the soil and with which LITOCLEAN has already previous experience. In this case, in addition to the remediation of the contaminated soil, the project intends to use the harvested crops to produce biofuel. This process will take place in a pilot biorefinery in Germany that combines cutting-edge biomass processing technologies to produce four types of clean direct biofuels for the trucking and shipping sectors.

    The project promotes the recovery of a waste, which is the contaminated soil, as well as the generation of a green product, such as biomass, and is fully aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals and Circular Economy.
