Polish Project awarded Best LIFE Environment Project Award by EU

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

A project to restore Lakes Jelonek and Winiary in the historical city of Gniezno and address problems caused by blue green algal blooms is one of five projects to receive the prestigious Best EU Life Environment Project Award 2011.  The successful project consisted of a range of measures, with Phoslock being used as an important tool to immobilize phosphorus in the sediment.  It is the first time that a project from Poland has received the award.  The aim of the award is to “shine a light on the most notable of the many worthwhile projects co-funded by the LIFE programme: those that provide a blueprint for others of what well-designed, well-executed, innovative and inclusive projects should look like”.
