GAIN Director visiting EDAFOTEC

The director of the Galician Agency for Innovation (Gain), Patricia Argerey, visited Edafotec on 24/11/2020, which is developing with the support of the Xunta an innovation project recognized with the Seal of Excellence of the European Commission.

Edafotec was a beneficiary of the two types of grants co-financed by the Feder Galicia 2014-2020 program, which aims to promote the participation of Galician entities in the Horizon 2020 program.

Edafotec will carry out the BtoGsoils project, an innovation initiative that offers a cutting-edge technology based on the combination of custom-made artificial soils with local bacteria and biochar to solve soil contamination problems in industrial areas.

This solution, which is highly competitive because it is based on nature, is environmentally friendly, durable and involves cost savings, received the seal of excellence of the SME Instrument Phase 2 of H2020.
