Demonstrate the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of a bioremediation approach for hydrocarbons polluted soils based on the bacteria and fungi strains with high-degrading power, also by enhancing the use of local agro-food by-products.
Demonstrate the feasibility to scale-up at industrial level, the production of microorganisms active in bioremediation and related biocatalysts.
Optimize protocols and guidelines for bioremediation that can be successfully applied in other scenarios at regional, national and European levels.
Enhance the microbiological remediation of contaminated sites in order to spread knowledge and awareness about soil pollution, risk assessment, biodiversity, ecotoxicology, soil ecology and bioeconomy.
Support the Soil Thematic Strategy by dissemination actions at european level aimed to show the biological approach advantages to legislators, public authorities, industries and community.
