May 20-24, 2019: AquaConSoil Congress in Antwerp

ISSeP will be presenting its VALSE and WALLPHY research projects at the AquaConSoil congress in Antwerp from May 20 to 24, 2019.

The VALSE project aims to validate cross-border materials recovery processes. It helps demonstrate the feasibility of reusing materials and the benefits of the circular economy (recovery of sediments and other materials).

With support from the European Regional Development Fund.

The WALLPHY project involves setting up phytomanagement experiments in Wallonia. Phytomanagement brings together a range of techniques involving the use of in situ plant species to contain, extract or degrade inorganic or organic pollutants present in the soil. The main aims of the WALLPHY project are to remove certain obstacles to the implementation of phytomanagement and to evaluate its performance, in order to support the development of this management method for undeveloped sites in Wallonia. It also aims to contribute to sustainable development by considering the use of the biomass produced in a circular economy approach.

AquaConSoil is a congress on the sustainable management and use of soils, sediments and water resources, bringing together over 600 international experts in these fields. These experts come from the scientific, private and public sectors for four days of exchanges and knowledge sharing.
