The Flora Toscana team brought the LIFE SUBSED project to the MyPlant international fair, which was held in Milan from 23 to 25 February 2022.
Although the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted communication and dissemination activities, the resumption of fairs constitutes an unparalleled opportunity for the dissemination of the solutions proposed by LIFE SUBSED.
During the fair, Flora Toscana technicians illustrated the objectives, results and actions of the LIFE SUBSED project, gathering the feedback and interest of operators in the sector.
Dr. Stefania Nin, researcher at the CREA-OF in Pescia, was invited as a member of the SedNet WG on the topic “Sediments in Circular Economy” and as scientific director of the international LIFE SUBSED project.
The CNR-IRET of Pisa took part in the Ecomondo international fair, which was held in Rimini from 26 to 29 October 2021 (here the program).
Ecomondo is the reference event in Europe for the ecological transition
and the new models of circular and regenerative economy: the perfect opportunity to present the objectives, actions and results of the LIFE SUBSED project. The CNR researchers conducted an extensive dissemination campaign, presenting the LIFE SUBSED project to the visitors of the fair and distributing the promotional material prepared for the occasion.

The CNR-IRET of Pisa participated in the RemTech Expo 2021, which took place in Ferrara from 20 to 24 September 2021.
RemTech is an international event specialized in the protection and sustainable development of the territory; remediation of contaminated sites, coasts and ports; hydrogeological instability; climate change; seismic risk; urban regeneration and sustainable chemical industry.
The researchers of CNR-IRET presented the objectives, actions and results of the LIFE SUBSED project to the visitors of the fair, also sharing the promotional material prepared for the occasion.
The poster presented by the CNR at its stand can be downloaded here.
The SedNet international conference entitled “Sediment Challenges and Opportunities due to Climate Change and Sustainable Development” this year took place online, from 28 June to 2 July (the program is available here).
The conference was attended by both the team of researchers from the CNR-IRET of Pisa and the team of researchers from the CREA-OF of Pescia.
During the event the groups gave some speech and presented posters relating to the objectives, actions and results of the LIFE SUBSED project.
Dr. Cristina Macci, from the CNR-IRET team, held the presentation entitled “Recovery and environmental recycling of sediments: CNR-IRET Pisa experience“, summarising all the projects in which the team has participated over the years focused on the treatment and the reuse of dredged sediments.

The CREA-OF team prepared for the event an oral presentation and a poster about to the LIFE SUBSED project.
In the video below, Dr. Stefania Nin of the CREA-OF team holding the presentation entitled “Developing pattern in Prunus laurocerasus grown on sediment enriched substrates (LIFE SUBSED 17 ENV/IT/000347)” (available here in pdf format).
In the video below, also Dr. Stefania Nin of the CREA-OF team illustrates the contents of the poster entitled “Quality assessment in wild strawberry fruit and basil leaf from plants cultivated on dredged remediated sediment (SUBSED LIFE17 ENV/IT/000347)” (available herein pdf format).
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.
Flora Toscana, with the contribution of the entire consortium, organized the first Italian workshop of the LIFE SUBSED project, entitled “Substrati sostenibili per l’agricoltura ottenuti da sedimenti marini dragati e bonificati: dai porti ai vasi” (Sustainable substrates for agriculture obtained from dredged and reclaimed marine sediments: from ports to vessels- here the program).
103 participants took part in the online event: agronomists, researchers, students and operators in the agricultural, floricultural and nursery sectors.
At the opening of the workshop, greetings were held from figures relevant for the success of LIFE SUBSED and the future exploitation of its results: the consortium thanks Dr. Gennaro Giliberti, manager of the Tuscany Region, Dr. Giulio Lotti, President of the Order of Agronomist and Forestry Doctors of the Province of Pistoia (which sponsored the event), and Dr. Stefano Gori, technical-scientific director of the interprovincial Lucca-Pistoia Nursery Association.
LIFE SUBSED also thanks Prof. Edgardo Giordani, Associate Professor of the University of Florence and coordinator of the LIFE HORTISED project (in which LIFE SUBSED has its roots), and Dr. Sofia Mannelli, president of the Bionet Green Chemistry Association.
During the workshop, in addition to presenting the progress of the LIFE SUBSED project and its objectives and expected results, a discussion was opened between the participants regarding the possibility of implementing circular economy solutions in the current regulatory context, reaching the common conclusion that it would be preferable to have support from the legislator for the implementation of these eco-sustainable technologies.

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.
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.
After a pause due to the difficult moment experienced with the COVID-19 pandemic, the Giornate Scientifiche SOI (SOI Scientific Days) returned in June 2021. The chosen theme, namely that of sustainability and how the objectives of the UN 2030 Agenda are declined by those in Italy who deal with research and dissemination in the field of horticulture, is perfectly in line with the contents of the LIFE SUBSED project.
The team of researchers from CREA-OF of Pescia brought LIFE SUBSED to the attention of the conference participants, through a presentation of the poster entitled “Sustainable substrates for agriculture from dredged remediated marine sediments: from ports to pots (LIFE 17 ENV/IT/000347)” (available here in pdf). Below is the recording of the presentation given by Dr. Maurizio Antonetti.
