LIFE Subsed at the seminar “Fitotecnologie per la Gestione e la bonifica di siti contaminati: esempi di buone pratiche” held in Pesaro – 04 March 2019

On Monday March 4th, the National Seminar “Fitotecnologie per la Gestione e la bonifica di siti contaminati: esempi di buone pratiche” (Phytotechnology for the Management and Reclamation of Contaminated Sites: Good Practice Examples) was held at the Pesaro Provincial Council Hall.

The event represented an important opportunity to illustrate objectives, actions and expected results of the LIFE Subsed project. The discussion then focused on the landfarming process to be used as the main technology in the remediation of sediments and other environmental matrices, or as a final refinement process (as proposed in the Subsed project).

  • Paolo De Angelis, DIBAF – University of Tuscia;
  • Massimo Fagnano, Dia / CIRAM – University of Naples;
