Phyto2Energy - Technical Seminar
2nd October 2017 | 10:00-14:00 | Institute for Ecology of Industrial Areas | 6, Kossutha St., 40-844 Katowice 

Phyto2Energy consortium and fellows cordially invite you to attend a Technical Seminar that will present the results of the project. Throughout the three and a half year of Phyto2Energy implementation, we have gained some interesting experiences and worked out new, unique knowledge on the opportunities of implementing a complex approach combining phytoremediation of heavy metal contaminated sites with energy crops production and their conversion to energy using gasification. Our goal in the project was to demonstrate that such approach may become an alternative for managing agricultural areas and postindustrial sites contaminated with heavy metals while delivering an environmental and economic added value. The project has been implemented jointly by fellows from research and commercial sector from such countries as Poland, Germany and Romania under the flag of the 7th Framework Programme of the European Union, in the frame of the Maria Curie – Skłodowska Action: Industry-Academia Partnership Pathways.


The objective of the seminar is to present and discuss the results achieved after three and a half year of project implementation. In particular we would like to present:

  • Results concerning the applicability of the pre-selected energy crop species such as miscanthus (Miscanthus x giganteus), virginia mallow (Sida hermaphrodita), cordgrass (Spartina pectinata), and switchgrass (Panicum virgatum) for phytoextraction and phytostablisation and the associated biomass production
  •  Studies on the identification of plant growth promoting microorganisms as enablers accelerating plant biomass production and the clean-up of the contaminated areas
  • Works on a prototype formula of a bioinnoculum stimulating biomass yield for phytoremediation purposes
  • Results on converting the produced biomass into energy using gasification taking into account environmental and economic considerations.

Speakers at the seminar will be the fellows from IETU, Vita 34 BioPlanta, Probiotics Poland, HMGU, SUT and ISPE involved in the implementation of the project.


We extend our invitation to:

  • students and researchers interested in renewable sources of energy, thermal conversion of biomass, heavy soil
  • remediation,
  • farmers interested to establish plantations of energy crops on low quality soils,
  • contaminated sites owners,
  • companies dealing with gasification equipment,
  • biofuel producers,
  • institutes and companies dealing with production of biological formula for biomass growth stimulation.
