Presentations from the Technical Seminar are available on the website!

Phyto2Energy consortium presented the results of the project at the Technical seminar. The seminar took place at IETU premises on 2nd October 2017, 10:00-14:00.

Throughout the three and a half year of Phyto2Energy implementation, we have gained some interesting experiences and worked out new, unique knowledge on the opportunities of implementing a complex approach combining phytoremediation of heavy metal contaminated sites with energy crops production and their conversion to energy using gasification. Our goal in the project was to demonstrate that such approach may become an alternative for managing agricultural areas and postindustrial sites contaminated with heavy metals while delivering an environmental and economic added value. The project has been implemented jointly by fellows from research and commercial sector from such countries as Poland, Germany and Romania under the flag of the 7th Framework Programme of the European Union, in the frame of the Maria Currie – Skłodowska Action: Industry-Academia Partnership Pathways.
