The "Green Initiative" of CPSBB was held for the second consecutive year

 

 The second edition of the campaign "Green Initiative" of CPSBB  was held in Trakia district of Plovdiv on April 1, 2022. The main  goal of the campaign is to improve the area around the newly  built campus of CPSBB and improve living conditions of  residents in the neighborhood.

 Scientists from CPSBB and experts from Trakia Municipality  took part in the campaign. They planted Paulownia  tomentosa  trees near the new building of CPSBB. It is called   he "Tree of the future" because of its extremely fast growth   and  huge potential for CO2 binding. With its huge leaves it   quickly and effectively purifies the air.  It is honey-bearing - it   blooms with large and beautiful inflorescences. The building of   the research campus of CPSBB will soon be completed and will   host top-notch science in the field of plant systems biology and  biotechnology. The CPSBB’s scientists Dr. Nikola Staykov, Dr.  Veselin Petrov, Dr. Aakansha Kanojia, Dr. Ramadoss  Dhanouskodi and Lyudmil Tonchev planted the trees  accompanied by Hristina Popova, Chief Ecology Specialist, and  Maria Petrova, Senior Ecology Specialist in Trakia Municipality.

One month ago, after a working meeting of the Deputy Mayor  of  Plovdiv Stefan Stoyanov, the Mayor of Trakia Municipality  Kostadin Dimitrov, the expert from the Funding Department of  CPSBB Assoc. Prof. Dr. Vasil Kolev, the directors of “Parks and  Gardens” Veselin Kozarev and "Cleanliness" Dimitar Georgiev, it  became clear that green areas and inter-block spaces will be  improved around the new research center. Specific adjacent  areas around the whole terrain of 23.5 decares were discussed  and identified in order to be leveled and grassed. The Mayor of  Trakia Municipality Kostadin Dimitrov committed to ensuring the  improvement of the parking places in the region.
