Restoration and landscape integration

The Environmental Restoration is a process spearheaded by man to in order to recover the environmental conditions (vegetation, wildlife, climate, water, soil, etc.) of a disturbed ecosystem. The objective of this process is to imitate the structure, function, landscape values, biodiversity and the dynamics of the original ecosystem. The aim of Landscape Integration is to orient and correct the previously executed landscape transformations (infrastructures, mines, buildings, etc.) in order to adapt them according to the landscape which is used as reference.

Our services include the design and execution of Technical Projects for the environmental restoration of land ecosystems (mining operations, quarries, dump sites, embankment slopes, deteriorated agroforestry systems, etc.) and aquatic ecosystems (dune systems, intertidal systems and marine floors, wetland areas and fluvial systems, etc.). Project Adaptation and Environmental Integration by the proper design of the phases and activities and the inclusion of preventive, protective, minimising, corrective and compensation measures.

Landscape integration of projects by selecting the most appropriate design, using the most suitable materials, and applying the best techniques based on the territorial analysis of their location.

Consulting services in the best Restoration Techniques according to the system conditions and impacts, such as reprofiling works, erosion control, automatic water purification systems, replanting of embankment slopes, hydroseeding, reforestation projects, edaphic modification and reinforcement, seed bank facilities, propagules and dispersant sources, seed retention, etc.

Specific corrective measures for Extraction Industries and Mining Activities, such as acid water treatments, bacterial inhibition, bioremediation and phytoremediation, amendments, restoration of vegetation cover, etc. Effective development of sustainable projects by minimising the barrier effect and the proliferation of exotic plant species and development of connectivity plans by means of fauna crossings, indigenous reforestation projects, etc. Polluted Soil Recovery programmes. Soil Quality Control (phytosanitary, salinization, CES, sodium content: exchangeable sodium percentage (ESP), RAS, heavy metals, organic wastes, acid emissions, etc.). Control of interactions, speciation phenomenon, pollutant mobilisation, bioaccumulation, etc. Soil rehabilitation projects.
