Phytomanagement is an effective technique for enhancing marginal sites (SMarg). These sites can be industrial or urban wastelands, polluted or not, areas prone to erosion, water catchment protection perimeters, etc. The development of products from renewable sources represents an important prospect for the Union. European. The biomass generated by phytomanagement can be integrated into the biobased economy as a resource, whether in terms of bioenergy or as a source of products/materials.
The New-C-Land project aims to promote (and support?) projects and initiatives to plant abandoned sites that cannot be used for food purposes. Its objectives are :
- to inventory and map marginal sites in Wallonia, Northern France and Flanders from regional and national databases ;
- to identify bio-based value chains near marginal sites ;
- to constitute a SMarg network by setting up information campaigns with the actors concerned (owners, managers of SMarg, potential users of plant raw materials from Smarg) ;
- to initiate and support planting projects on SMarg;
- to contribute to the development of the bio-based economy by communicating with public and private sector players.
Co-financed within the framework of the Interreg France-Wallonia-Vlaanderen Programme, the New-C-Land project benefits from the support of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), OVAM, the West-Vlaanderen Province and Wallonia.
