National Conference on Easements for Military Purposes. Elettra joins a land restoration project.


On June 19 of this year, the second National Conference on Easements for Military Purposes was held at the Cecchignola Military Compound in Rome. On this occasion, the President of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region Debora Serracchiani and the Minister of Defense Roberta Pinotti signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the goal of launching a collaborative effort for reclaiming military sites for projects of interest to local communities. In her remarks, President Serracchiani highlighted the key role played by Elettra - Sincrotrone Trieste, which is involved in a highly innovative land restoration project. Elettra participated directly in the conference with a presentation, a stand, and a video illustrating the potential of various beamlines (SISSI, SYRMEP, TwinMic, XAFS) for a land restoration project using phytoremediation techniques (using plant species that can help clean up polluted areas).
