To prevent further degradation of our environment and to remediate damage caused by increasingly industrialized society phytotechnologies are beginning to offer efficient and environmentally friendly solutions to clean up contaminated soils, sediments, brownfields and wastewater, to enhance food chain safety and to develop renewable energy sources. Crop plants with enhanced capacity to uptake nutrients can help in providing healthy food improving human welfare through balanced mineral nutrition. Plants are more economically and socially attractive compared to physico-chemical and engineering approaches even though the time scale required to reach the desired end-points can be a limiting factor.

The objective of the conference will be to provide a major interdisciplinary forum for presenting new approaches from relevant areas of environmental science, to foster integration of the latest developments in scientific research into engineering applications, and to facilitate technology transfer from well-tested ideas into practical products, waste management, remedial processes, and ecosystem restoration. The aim is also to discuss perspectives in the field of phytotechnologies; to highlight significant progress recently made by researchers in Europe and elsewhere; and to examine some critical points in overcoming bottlenecks in plant removal and detoxification of pollutants.

Different sessions will address the state of art with the following topics:
