Dr. Masciandaro presented the LIFE SUBSED project during the day entitled “Phytoremediation of contaminated land and phytotreatement of polluted water: successfull case studies” (here the specific program).
The presentation shown during the intervention entitled “Phytotreatment techniques for dredging sediments: the LIFE AGRISED and LIFE SUBSED experiences” can be downloaded here.
On 22 April 2021 the beneficiaries of the LIFE Subsed project and the external monitor Dr. Carlo Ponzio met during an online meeting on the occasion of the monitoring for the 30 months of the LIFE Subsed project. During the meeting, the progress of the project and the actions planned in the following months were illustrated.
Subsequently, on Monday 26 April, the beneficiaries and the external monitor met live at Flora Toscana to visit the experimental sites of the LIFE SUBSED project, and to personally verify the progress and results achieved with the planned activities.

The CNR-IRET group of Pisa presented the LIFE SUBSED project during the XI International Symposium of Environmental Engineering, which was held in Turin from 29 June to 2 July (the program is available here). For the occasion, the group presented an abstract entitled “Landfarming to valorize phytoremediated sediments for their reuse in nursery “LIFE SUBSED LIFE17 ENV/IT/000347””.
Together with the abstract, a poster (downloadable here) was also presented, which systematically illustrates the process and the results of the landfarming carried out during the LIFE SUBSED project.
The LIFE SUBSED project has been presented to the representatives of the Coldiretti association during a visit at Flora Toscana. Flora Toscana and CREA researchers and technicians illustrated the objectives, expected results and progress of the project. Particular attention has been paid to the issues of circularity and environmental sustainability.

During the meeting, Maria Castellani (technical manager of the LIFE SUBSED project) illustrated the objectives and expected results. Particular attention was paid to the environmental issue and to the Italian legislation on the reuse of materials classified as waste. The latter represents today a significant regulatory barrier, which can slow down the transition towards a circular economy.
The meeting represented an opportunity for a fruitful comparison and exchange of ideas on the current regulatory framework and on possible development paths for sustainable solutions such as the one proposed by LIFE SUBSED.
The Miguel Hernandez University organized a series of seminars in November and December 2020, aimed at students of the Degree courses in Agri-food and Agri-environmental Engineering and students of the Master’s Degree in Advanced Techniques for Research and Production in Fruit Growing.
During the meetings the objectives and expected results of the LIFE SUBSED project were illustrated. The students were also able to investigate the more technical aspects of the trials in progress in the Italian and Spanish experimental sites, evaluating the potential of marine sediment as an ingredient for sustainable nursery substrates.
The activities of the LIFE SUBSED project continue at the sites of the Italian and Spanish beneficiaries! Despite the difficulties related to the management of the COVID-19 pandemic and the delays in the progress of the planned actions, cultivation trials are progressing in parallel with the collection and analysis of data.
Here are some photos relating to the cultivation trials currently underway in Italy.

On Friday 18 December 2020 Miguel Agulló Velasco, President of COITAGRA (Colegio Oficial de Ingenieros Técnicos Agrícolas y Graduados de Alicante) visited the demonstration site of the LIFE SUBSED project at the Miguel Hernandez University.
The UMH team illustrated the objectives and expected results of the project and accompanied the President on a visit to the experimental site of the SUBSED project. During the visit, the qualities of the plants in cultivation and the potential of the substrate based on marine sediment were assessed.
During the visit, the opportunities of the LIFE program for the development of new eco-sustainable technologies were also discussed, solutions that represent an incentive to the transition of companies towards more conscious circular economy models.
On Wednesday 16 December 2020 Caliplant welcomed the Minister of Water, Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and the Environment of the Region of Murcia, Antonio Luengo, the mayor of San Javier, José Miguel Luengo, the Councilor for Agriculture Sergio Martinez and the General Director of Waters Sebastian Delgado.
The technician Juan Luis Jimenez Martinez presented the objectives and the expected results of the LIFE SUBSED project to the politicians, underlining the importance that these initiatives have for the development of a more sustainable future in the agricultural sector.
During the visit, various political and legislative aspects were discussed, aspects which sometimes constitute real barriers to the development of a real and effective circular economy.
