The University of Bologna, 1st Italian University in the Bioeconomy sector and 4th in Europe, is interested in contributing as a partner to a consortium in the JU-CBE-2023-R-01: Phyto-management; curing soil with industrial crops, utilising contaminated and saline land for industrial crop production.
Expertise offered by UNIBO:
- Research group focuses on Plant Biology and General Botany. Expertise in n the use of plants hyperaccumulators to phytoremediation of metals from contaminated soils, urban sludges, waters. Analysis of metals uptake in plant organs. In collaboration with WUR, use of synchrotrone technologies for localization of metals inside the plant organs. Expertise in plant physiology under salt stress or calt+metal stress conditions.
- Research group focuses on nutrients recovery from wastewater, using material deriving from advanced carbon, with a view to their possible reuse in agriculture and use of advanced carbons. Expertise in Valorization of metal-reach biomasses from phyto-management practices for the production of energy and Second Generation Carbons (Advanced Carbons) with improved capability of adsorption for emergent pollutants.
- Research group focuses on non-food oilseed crops, mainly belonging to the Brassicaceae and Euphorbiaceae families. Expertise in non-food crops, for bioenergy and biobased applications, like oilseed crops, fiber crops, lignocellulosic crops. Experience on growing industrial crops on contaminated and marginal, idle and degraded land, such as saline soils.
