21st June 2018 – Open Meeting Bilbao

Bilbao City Council, San Agustín Building, C/ Ernesto Ercoreca, 12, 6º B, Bilbao

5 European procurers facing a common challenge together to leverage public demand and identify fit-for-purpose and cost-effective innovative and sustainable solutions to soil decontamination. The common challenge faced by the POSIDON buyers’ group is identifying a soil (and eventually groundwater) remediation new, life-cycle, cost-effective technology, preferred as in-situ (and eventually on-site), to be capable of decontaminate heterogeneous anthropic soils in brownfield, composed by a mixture of industrial waste (like filling soils highly polluted by Petroleum Hydrocarbons) and soils consisting on clays and sands, highly polluted by Petroleum hydrocarbons (TPHs and PAHs), and heavy metals.
