22 Apr 2021 BtoGsoils project started
BtoGsoils started in February 2021 and will run until the end of 2022. During the course of the project, EDAFOTEC will carry out a pilot project in a public plot of the City of O Porriño, with the aim of decontaminating the area affected by lindane, using nature-based technologies.
Lindane is an organochlorine pesticide widely used in the agri-food and pharmaceutical industry until the 1990s. This pesticide is highly polluting and persistent. Decontamination of areas affected by this pesticide will substantially improve the health and quality of life of people and habitats where it is currently present across Europe.
