CERESiS organized a Workshop at the 30th EUBCE Conference

In the context of the 30th EUBCE Conference, on May 12 (2022), CERESiS organized a policy workshop entitled “Squaring the circle between phytoremediation and biofuel production”.

The workshop was co-organized by 3 H2020 projects (CERESiS, GOLD, Phy2Climate) that have been funded under the topic “Combined clean biofuel production and phytoremediation solutions from contaminated lands”. The aim of the workshop has been to discuss the regulatory and policy framework at the intersection of contaminated soil management and biofuels areas and highlight existing gaps and blind spots, with a view to develop proposals to overcome such gaps. The vision is to facilitate the use of biomass grown in contaminated land for the purpose of phytoremediation to produce clean biofuels for the transport sector.
