The event was organised by the project LIFE-EMPORE (LIFE15 ENV/ES/000598) to present their results and compare their achievements with other LIFE projects (Clean-Up and Aquemfree).
IMIDA was invited to take part in the presentation: LIFE AQUEMFREE. Descontaminación in situ de aguas residuales de procedencia agrícola mediante fotocatálisis solar. As a part of the communication, IMIDA included the presentation of the project LIFE- AgRemSO3il, the objectives and first steps of its implementation, once it is in the line of treating emerging pollutants though in this case, from the soil.
About LIFE+ AgRemSO3il
The LIFE AgRemSO3il pilot project aims to develop new innovative technology, at a large farm-scale, using agrochemical remediation in farm soils by combining solarization and ozonation in situ. This innovative solution involves building new technological applications (giant equipment) and using methods that advance oxidation processes, which are called ozonation and H2O2; or solarization. The project provides a new cost-effective solution for this ongoing, silent problem while supporting the soil’s true function as part of the wider ecosystem positively impacting the feed and food products produced, which have consequent effects on human health. The project also plans to integrate into its work Common Agriculture Policy’s environmental objectives and promote EU’s agriculture and environmental policies.
