The MISCOMAR project will hold its final conference, to presents its developed approach and other results from the project, in the context of the EU’s policies for advanced biofuels and bioenergy.

MISCOMAR at the 15th International Phytotechnology Conference

The International Phytotechnology Conference organised by the International Society of Phytotechnology took place on 1-5 October 2018 in Novi Sad, Serbia. As every year, the conference was an opportunity for scientists and practitioners from around the world to present the latest results of research and implementation in the field of phytotechnology.

SidaTim Conference: the possibility of using Sida hermaphrodita in the agro-forest system

Strengthening of organic farming in Europe, cultivation of biomass for bioenergy production, possibilities of cultivating perennial crops on poor soils and soils contaminated with heavy metals, innovative approaches to agricultural management - these are the key topics addressed during the international scientific conference: Novel and Sustainable Pathways of Biomass Production, which was held on 19-20 September 2018 in Szczecin-Kobylanka.

Why is it worth cultivating energy plants on soils contaminated with heavy metals?

On the 27 of September 2018 at the Institute for Ecology of Industrial Areas scientists and practitioners discussed the possibilities of growing energy crops on soils contaminated with lead, cadmium and zinc and on post-industrial wastelands. The workshops took place as part of the MISCOMAR project.
