Nymphe Stakeholder Workshop

Madrid, Spain & Online | 24th until 24th of January 2024

The 2024’s Eu-Funded Nymphe project (New system-dirven bioremediation of polluted habitats and environment) explores innovative nature-based bioremediation solutions to revitalize land and waters affected by deep environmental contamination.

Bioremediation is a biotechnological method that exploits the natural abilities of micro- and macroorganisms, enzymes and plants to boost their natural powers to absorb, accumulate and degrade pollutants and toxins from soil, water and other environments.

Are you interested in knowing more about bioremediation? Then this workshop is for you!
