The European project Phy2Climate (P2C) combines the remediation of contaminated soil through plants and the processing and use of resulting biomass as bio-combustibles. The aim of the workshop is to verify Phy2Climate’s approach from a practical and economical point of view. Together with participating experts and stakeholders we will have a look at process proposed by P2C and the draft of an overall business model as well as the models for the contributing parties in the overall process.

It is the implicit goal to identify potential obstacles as well as opportunities that may affect the feasibility of following through this approach. Participants of the workshop will be conveyed the projects findings from a process and economic point of view and will be invited to share their expertise to improve the realization and pursuit of the P2C overall goal of combining phytoremediation and the production of biofuels and bio-char in a beneficial manner.

Participants of this workshop will gain essential insight on the opportunities of the P2C-approach which joins the benefits of gentle remediation of contaminated soils with production of bio-combustibles with low CO2-impact or possibly C02 reduction potential.
