These three Horizon 2020 projects; GOLD, CERESiS, Phy2Climate are aiming to bridge the gap between remediation of contaminated sites and the production of clean energy. All three projects will use phytoremediation techniques, which uses plants to remove contaminants from soil, and in turn the cultivated energy crops will be used as biomass feedstock and converted to produce clean advanced biofuels.

In this session we will hear about the different conversion and separation technologies that are being researched by the three projects.

The aim of the workshop is to enable these three H2020 sister projects to present together, each giving an overview of the individual project and the different conversion and separation technologies that each project is researching.

At the time of the workshop CERESiS will be in the final part of the project so will be able to present some of the most important results of the project.

GOLD and Phy2Climate will have completed two years of trial crops in the field, and therefore will present more of the first stages of the conversion process.
