Europomice is pleased to point out some important industry events.

Europomice was one of the main Sponsors of the GREY TO GREEN CONFERENCE, the annual regional sustainability conference with a focus on green infrastructure implementation at an urban and regional level hosted by Green Roofs for Healthy Cities and the Green Infrastructure Foundation, that was taking place in Toronto on April 4 & 5 

This year, Grey to Green also highlighted the economic impacts of climate change adaptation such as flooding and the urban heat island. Flooding affects both the individual in terms of health and well being and has significant economic impacts for society. These issues will continue to get worse as climate change progresses, but green infrastructure can help.

This conference was the leading forum for designers, policy makers, manufacturers, growers, landscapers, and green infrastructure professionals.
The interdisciplinary conference explored the latest science on green infrastructure performance, economic valuation and public policy developments, new technological developments, and best practices in design, installation and maintenance. The conference also included a trade show, cutting-edge training courses, tours of outstanding projects, and networking special events.

The III INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON GROWING MEDIA, COMPOSTING AND SUBSTRATE ANALYSIS will be held in Milan (Italy) June 24 – 28, 2019 and Europomice will be one of the main Sponsors of this important event. The 2019 International Symposium will be an ideal occasion for discussing and exchanging experiences on growing media and all connected topics: not only a scientific program, but also cultural and touristic events.

This is the second time that a meeting on substrates has been hold in Italy (the first being in 1992 in Florence) and since then the growing media industry had consistently expanded in Italy. According to the last European survey, the Italian market for growing media ranked only second to Germany and has reached its highest-ever value in Europe.

Symposium topics:

  • Novel inorganic and organic materials as soilless media
  • Technological advances in production, processing and use of growing media constituents
  • Adopting new technologies: green roofs, green walls, media for robotic systems
  • Advances in analytical characterization of growing media
  • Management of water and nutrient requirements of substrates
    Composting processes and use of composted end-products as components of growing media
  • Microbiology and growing media: beneficial and disease-inciting microorganisms
  • Weed, pest and disease control in growing media
  • Advances in growing media additives
  • Hydroponics and aquaponics based systems
  • Soilless cultivation and horticulture sustainability
  • Advances in peat use sustainability
  • Life cycle assessment of growing media and components
  • Horticulture use of materials from bioenergy processes and biofactories (biochar, digestate, bioplastic)

24th-28th June 2019
