Project partner SOSALT is excited to share photos of the progress of The Real Environment Laboratory (REL) currently in development within the natural reserve of Trapani and Paceco Saltworks in Sicily. This ancient building in the middle of saltworks is being renovated so that it can host a small laboratory with facilities capable of performing tests on the seawater brines/bitterns.
