The conference RemTechEurope is an International conference organized by European Research Centre, EU Commission in Ferrara,Italy. The conference is a part of international show RemTechExpo ( www.remtechexpo.com) gathered annually firms and experts in remediation technologies, related equipment and logistic from across Europe.
On September 19-21, 2018 prof. Valentina Pidlisnyuk (UJEP) participated in REmTechEurope with report “Testing the phytotechnology with Miscanthusxgigateus at the military contaminated sites: field stage” and introduced results about current implementation of phytotechnology at the military sites in Dolyna, Kurakhove and Ft.Riley. She also attended poster session with presentation “The effect of amendments to the productivity of Miscanthus × giganteus”.
While at the conference prof. Pidlisnyuk had discussions with Ana Payá Pérez, Joint Research Centre JRC-Ispra, European Commission; John Vijgen, International HCH & Pesticides Association, Denmark; prof. Paul Nathanail, Land Quality Management Ltd & INSPIRATION4EU, University of Nottingem, Great Britain; Frank Swartjes, National Institute of Human Health and the Environment, The Netherlands; Mgr.Achim Constantin, International consultant in contaminated sites, Germany, Elena Bradiakova, Slovak Environmental Agency. In addition, Valentina Pidlisnyuk visited RemTechShow and observed exhibition introduced by «Comando Unita Forestali Ambientali e Agroalimentari Carabinieri” (Forest Military Divisions), Italy. The team represented own remediation technologies applied at land fields where the miscanthus phytotechnology may be potentially applied as well.
Prof. Pidlisnyuk discussed the issue of military sites’ assessment with Mr.Jarno Laitinen, Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment, Program manager at the Finish Clean soil program and Dr. Jussi Reinikainen, Senior expert at the Finish Environmental Institute. It was proposed to organize a workshop about assessment approach developed within Finish Clean soil program regarding selection remediation technology for contaminated sites, in Ukraine and to discussed ways of application the approach for the military sites. The members of the project’s teams from NULES and NULP and potential end-users of miscanthus phytotechnology from Ukraine, Slovakia and Czech Republic may be an auditorium of the workshop. The workshop’s proposal will be discussed at G4687 Co-Directors meeting scheduled at the 15th International Phytotechnology Conference in Novy Sad, Serbia on October 1, 2018.
