LIFE-AgRemSO3il at LIFE Drainuse Final Conference
IMIDA was invited to take part in the Final conference of the project LIFE-DRAINUSE (LIFE14 ENV/ES/000538) held at the University of Murcia Scientific Park on 29th November.
This project has demonstrated, through the design, construction, and setting up of a complete recirculation pilot system, the technological possibility of re-using drainage in Euro-Mediterranean regions.
Fulgencio Contreras López (Head of the Office of Technology Transfer) participated in the presentation “IMIDA’s recent projects: LIFE-Aquemfree and LIFE- AgRemSO3il”.
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.
