Join us for this free webinar in which three EU H2020 projects - GOLD, Phy2Climate, CERESiS - will present real research data from phytoremediation field trials. These three H2020 projects have identified the same global problems, climate change and land scarcity, as the centre of their research objectives, and are aiming to find a solution by bridging the gap between remediation of contaminated unusable land and the production of clean energy.

The first step in bridging the gap is by determining the best energy crops to grow on poor quality soils, and that also have the best capacity to remediate soils through the phytoremediation process. All three projects have now completed at least one year of field trials, on low iLUC lands, all around the world. In this webinar we will hear how successful the phytoremediation part of the research has been.
