The implementation phase of the BIOREM demonstration will involve four tightly connected actions:
- Demonstration of the innovative soil monitoring method through a characterization of the initial soil conditions, which will also provide a reference framework for the following actions.
- Demonstration of the addition of exogenous organic matter to 10 different types of soil.
- Demonstration of BIOREM revegetation strategies.
(The 10 plots wil be subdivided into 40 sub-plots: 10 will not be treated and will serve as a control sample; 10 will be treated with addition of exogenous organic matter; 10 will receive revegetation; 10 will be treated with a combination of addition of exogenous organic matter and revegetation according to the BIOREM method, whose superior effectiveness will be demonstrated).
- Demonstration of the innovative biochemical monitoring methodology through four sampling and measurement campaigns leading to a dynamic characterization of the status and evolution of the treated soils.
The initiative and its results will be widely disseminated in the involved countries and in the EU through a structured, thorough and consistent communication campaign.
