LIFE AgRemSO3il at the 3rd International Congress of Chemical Engineering
LIFE AgRemSO3il participated in the 3rd International Congress of Chemical Engineering, ICCE3, held in Santander, Spain, between 19th and 21th June.
Researchers from IMIDA presented the work entitled “Removal of eight triazole and amide pesticides in soil by intermittent ozonation”.
The presentation covers the degradation of residues of eight pesticides (difenoconazole, myclobutanil, tebuconazole, triadimenol, cyflufenamid, flonicamid, napropamide, and propyzamide) in two different clay-loam soils applying intermittent ozonation treatment for 6 days.
About LIFE+ AgRemSO3il
The LIFE AgRemSO3il pilot project aims to develop new innovative technology, at a large farm-scale, using agrochemical remediation in farm soils by combining solarization and ozonation in situ. This innovative solution involves building new technological applications (giant equipment) and using methods that advance oxidation processes, which are called ozonation and H2O2; or solarization. The project provides a new cost-effective solution for this ongoing, silent problem while supporting the soil's true function as part of the wider ecosystem positively impacting the feed and food products produced, which have consequent effects on human health. The project also plans to integrate into its work Common Agriculture Policy's environmental objectives and promote EU's agriculture and environmental policies.
