The main objective at "LIFE NIEBLAS (" is to minimise impact derived from greenhouse gases emission within environmental restoration projects, increasing their implementation success while reducing costs. As a result, new devices have been developed in terms of fog water collectors improving harvesting capacity while increasing ease of use and deployment versatility.

Furthermore, implementation of newly developed reforestation and irrigation systems has significantly improved survival rates and reduced water requirements having a direct impact in carbon footprint reduction.


This congress will be structured in several talks, networking spaces, poster exhibition, a field visit and exchange of experiences.


Thursday 17th

On Thursday 17th October the conference will be held at INFECAR, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, with scientific and technical presentations delivered in three blocks where spaces for round tables and poster exhibitions will also be provided for all attendees to interact. At Life Nieblas we are committed to encourage synergies and participation between attendees and professionals who will be involved in this congress.
