Doctor of Sciences in the Scientific Field of Environmental Engineering and Landscape Management, Professor in Vilnius Gediminas Technical University, the Department of Environmental Protection, obtained the diploma of Bachelor and international (in English) Master of Sciences in Vilnius Gediminas Technical University. In 2007, she defended a thesis named Investigation and Evaluation of the Transfer of Heavy metals from Soil to the Tree. Since 2007, Edita has been a scientific secretary of the international Journal of Environmental Engineering and Ecological Science, a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal published by Romanian Academy of Science, Annals – Series on Chemistry Sciences, a member of EISN-Institute and a representative of Lithuania in the EU research programs COST859 Phytotechnologies to Promote Sustainable Land Use Management and Improve Food Chain Safety, COST FA0905 Mineral-Improved Crop Production for Healthy Food and Feed, COST TD1107 Biochar as option for sustainable resource management. Areas of interests: application of biogeochemical processes to the environmental protection technologies, evaluation of metals’ transportation in the ecosphere and thermal processing and application of lignocellulosic products in the environmental protection engineering. E. Baltrėnaitė delivers lectures to Master degree students about the environmental protection technologies, anthropogenic impact on the environment, waste utilization, soil recovery technologies, clean technologies, soil remediation technologies and supervises doctoral students. She is also a member of the Committee for the research area of Environmental Engineering and a head/member of the committees for seven defended theses. E. Baltrėnaitė delivers lectures in Helsinki University (Finland), Valencia Polytechnic University (Spain), Aalto University (Finland) and Southern Denmark University. She paid research visits to Norwegian University of Life Sciences, Slovenian Research Institute after Joseph Stephan and Latvian State Wood Chemistry Institute. She maintains close contacts and cooperates with other high schools in Europe and other countries of the world, such as the State Montclair University (USA), Swiss Federal Technological Institute in Zurich, Illinois Institute of Technology (USA), Helsinki University (Finland), The State Tomsk University (Russia), Barcelona University (Spain) and Ancona University (Italy). Major publications: the author or co-author of 92 papers (27 of which are published in the Web of Science refereed journals having the citation index), the corresponding author of the Springer published monograph The Sustainable Role of the Tree in Environmental Protection Technologies, textbook Manufacturing Industries and Environmental Impact, chapters in the books: Phytoremediation: Management of Environmental Contaminants; Plants, Pollutants and Remediation published by Springer. She is a reviewer of the papers for the international journals, such as Journal of Environmental Management, Environmental Science and Pollution Research, Environmental and Experimental Botany and Dendrochronology. In 2013–2014, Edita Baltrėnaitė was granted a young researcher grant for the work The Evaluation of heavy metals’ stability in biochar and, in 2007, a prize for the work Investigation and Evaluation of the Transfer of Heavy Metals from Soil to the Tree by the Lithuanian Academy of Sciences.
