Towards a European Strategy for soil protection

International conference

Turin, July 13th 2018

July 13th, 2018 - Botanical Garden of the University of Turin | Via PA. Mattioli, 25 Turin

European success cases and most innovative methods to contrast land use, decontamination and remediation of polluted sites

The elimination of SOIL CONSUMPTION and promoting sustainable methods of RECLAMATION and REGENERATION of SOILS POLLUTED are two of the pillars of the Thematic Strategy for soil protection promoted by the EU. There are 340,000 sites throughout Europe that require remediation and only 15% of these have been carried out or are being remediated.
The adoption of good practices on the protection and remediation of polluted soils is still largely far from widespread and effective diffusion.
The conference aims to share TECHNOLOGICAL SOLUTIONS and SUCCESSFUL METHODS able to become a SUSTAINABLE and REPLICABLE MODEL at the EUROPEAN level.
