LLI-325 Innovative brownfield regeneration for sustainable development of cross-border regions (BrownReg)

The objective of the project is to develop, implement and disseminate a new knowledge for innovative and environmental friendly regeneration of brownfields by cooperation between the research institution and municipalities in cross-border regions of Latvia and Lithuania.

In the project innovative approach of phytoremediation will be used for a first time for cleaning and revitalizing of soils of brownfields in Latvia-Lithuania. There will be 3 brownfield territories revitalised within the project:

  • Territory of former linen factory in Kraslavas Street 1, Ludza (total area 8.9776 ha);
  • Territory of former Kazitiškis heating plant in Kazitiškis subdistrict, Ignalina district (total area of 385 m2);
  • Territory of former Oil products station in Naivių village, Skapiškis subdistrict, Kupiškis district (total area of 313 m2).

Project will publish best practice guidelines for municipality planners, professionals and public in cooperation between the university and municipalities. Cleaning of brownfields from build-up elements and implementation of obtained knowledge by modelling 3D scenarios will be done. Phytoremediation pilot areas for cleaning of polluted soil in brownfields in Ludza, Ignalina and Kupiskis will be installed and monitored. During the project important practical and scientific information will be collected on innovative and environmental friendly technologies which could be used in further regeneration projects of brownfield areas.

Project results will be disseminated during 3 two-day thematic workshops and seminars, as well as in final project closing seminar.
