Project BioReGen: Planting trees to recover a damaged ecosystem
University of Teeside's CLEMANCE (Clean Environment Management Centre) program achieves this recovery by planting specific trees such as willows, miscanthus, phalaris arundinacea and switchgrass. The trees are a good source for biomass (for small-scale power plants) and switchgrass can be used as a raw material to obtain biofuels.
The process has been very successful so far, but it's got an inconvenient truth: it takes years to depollute an area, because plants have their own growing cycle. And they've got plenty of terrain to work on: 1,155 Ha (2,850 Acres).
