Organized by: Ecomondo Scientific Technical Committee & Electra (H2020 partners)

The ELECTRA project aims to jointly develop and test highly innovative bio-electrochemical systems-based remediation biotechnologies at laboratory scale in environmentally relevant conditions and bring the four most efficient technologies to the field in both China and Europe.
A diverse set of technologies has been developed because: (i) the matrices in which pollution occurs are highly diverse, requiring different approaches, (ii) the types of pollutants to be addressed is equally diverse, and (iii) multiple technologies have been tested and brought at pilot stage. 
The workshop is targeted at professionals from the bioremediation and remediation sector, which are interested in new treatment technologies. It will also discuss remediation market opportunities for European companies in China.
