LIFE Subsed took part in the 3rd national congress “Fruta de Hueso” (www.frutadehueso.com) thanks to the participation of the CaliPlant team. Below are some information pages on the event and the article dedicated to CaliPlant and the Subsed project.
Between 26 and 29 March 2019 the course “Water management across agro-ecosystems” has been held in Pisa at the CNR IRET headquarters (here the list of participants is available), as part of the “Springesemester in water and environmental management” organized by “UniLaSalle” of Beauvais in France. During the event, information material for the LIFE Subsed project has been distributed to the students.
The LIFE project was presented by the CNR-IRET team of Pisa during the Institute Conference (here the program) which took place in Rome on 9 and 10 April. During the event, in addition to an oral intervention, the poster that is shown below was exposed.
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.
Dr. Grazia Masciandaro, first researcher at the CRN of Pisa, together with Prof. Giancarlo Renella of the University of Florence gave the speech entitled “Fitotecnologie per il reimpiego dei sedimenti fluviali contaminati” (Fitotechnology for the reuse of contaminated river sediments).
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).
The seminar also allowed for a strengthening of relations with important stakeholders in the sector:
- Andrea Sconocchia, REMTECH scientific committee and GdL Manager Fitoremedio RECONNET;
- Paolo De Angelis, DIBAF – University of Tuscia;
- Massimo Fagnano, Dia / CIRAM – University of Naples;
- Marco Falconi, CNR-ISPRA of Rome;
- Valeria Ancona, CNR-ISPRA of Taranto.
Thanks to the participation of Caliplant at the international Fruit Logistica fair, which was held in Berlin from 6 to 8 January, the objectives and results of the LIFE Subsed project continue to be disseminated. The delegates of Caliplant had the opportunity to meet different stakeholders and policy makers of great importance for the success of the project and the achievement of the objectives set.

Meeting with Francesco Bellino, Officer and Agronomist of the Puglia Region, at the headquarters of the Region in Bari.
During the meeting, Dr. Grazia Masciandaro presented the Subsed project, describing its objectives and expected results. In particular, the conversation covered aspects related to the use of dredged sediments in agriculture, with assessment of limits, advantages and costs. Particular attention has been paid to legislation, which unfortunately does not currently allow the use of reclaimed sediment in agriculture, but for which the LIFE Subsed project is working intensively.
LIFE Subsed at IPM ESSEN 2019 – 22-25 January 2019
From January 22nd to 25th the IPM ESSEN 2019 was held, the most important international fair for the gardening sector. The participation of around 1,600 exhibitors from 50 countries and international experts makes IPM ESSEN the world’s number one platform for the exchange of information and the creation of orders in the gardening sector. From floriculturists to garden center owners, to members of the GaLa, the association of German gardeners and nurserymen, to florists: visiting Messe Essen, everyone will benefit from valuable insights, innovative products and lots of useful information for their business.
The event is a unique opportunity for the dissemination of the LIFE Subsed project, and for the presentation of the future commercial offer that will derive from it. The coordinator Flora Toscana took care to present at its stand the objectives and expected results of the European project LIFE Subsed.
During the fair, information material was distributed to the various stakeholders in the sector: the following is portrayed by the project manager LIFE Subsed Dr. Maria Castellani with the manager of the province of Pistoia Renato Ferretti.
