These are the first information that I have collected on the mail.
Apparently the Network proposed is receiving a good interest.
I will tell more in a few days.

EU NETWORK on Application of plant systems to environmental control:
remediation, waste water treatments, monitoring

The list of contents may include:
1 Application of plants to soil and water remediation (PCB, PAH, removal)
2 Phytoextraction from contaminated soils (heavy metals, radionuclides and
3 Treatment of waste waters (municipal, industrial)
4 Monitoring of industrial plants, urban areas, railroad systems
5 Physiology and metabolism of plants for environmental control
6 Taxonomy and genetic resources
7 Genetics and genetic engineering
8 Application of physico-chemical methods to study phytoremediation

The colleagues who have already subscribed for the network are:

(benzene), monitoring (benzene, heavy metals), genetics and genetic engineering

Of course industrial partners interested in the exploitation of plants for
phytoremediation are very welcome in the Network and they may become part
of it as well
If somebody of you that have subscribed the Network are aware of industrial
partners interested in any specific area covered by the Network, please feel
free to contact them and to verify their intention towards the Network.

This is all for now, I will contact everybody again at the end of this week.
Thanks for cooperation.
