The course will focus on the latest trends used for soil decontamination, examples from Europe and Canada. A case of phytoremediation practices (decontamination mediated by plants and soil microorganisms) for trace elements and organic pollutants is shown, including a specific session for the case of lindane. A session on artificial wetlands built to purify contaminated water is also included.
Field visits to contaminated and degraded sites of the Vitoria-Gasteiz sourroundings will be done (gravestones of Lasarte, Júndiz industrial polygon), where these techniques are being implemented or can be done in the short term.



Communicate about the importance of the soil and the need for its conservation.

Deepen the relationship between soil-plant-microorganisms and their decontaminating potential.

Know new in situ decontamination technologies: phytoremediation and constructed wetlands.

Learn to apply phytotechnologies to degraded soils and contaminated waters through practical cases, including persistent organic pollutants such as lindane.
