EROSION CONTROL

What PRATI ARMATI® can do: STOP EROSION and DESERTIFICATION

 

  • EROSION CONTROL: PRATI ARMATI stop erosion and desertification. The seeds  grow on every sterile lithotype  (compact clay, altered or fractured rocks,  soils polluted by hydrocarbons  and heavy metals, even in concentrations 10 times above the legally permitted limits, lime added soils up to 5% in weight) without topsoil, plastic and natural materials (geo-grids, geotextile meshes, natural fibre nets, mulch, bonded wood-fibre matrices, and so on);
  • EROSION CONTROL: if the above materials are already on-site, PRATI ARMATI  can hide them, increasing their performances and landscape benefits;
  • EROSION CONTROL: PRATI ARMATI 
  • mitigate the environmental impact of conventional civil works;
  • mutual and synergic protection of conventional civil infrastructure, reducing maintenance works;
  • accelerate the re-naturalization process;
  • subtracts up to 400% more CO2 than traditional plants, according to Kyoto Protocol;
  • increase soil shear resistance and safety factor;
  • protect and waterproof the slope  in case of heavy rainfall event;
  • protect from fractures and rifting;
  • reduce soil saturation;
  • thrive even in soils polluted with high levels of heavy metals: Lead, chrome, zinc, nickel, copper, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, cobalt, antimony, selenium, and so on;
  • isolate polluting soils. Prevents the dispersion of polluting dusts via water and wind (transportation in suspension, via infiltration and wind-borne deflation).
  • change a fragile ground in a plastic “soil-roots” system.

Advantages of PRATI ARMATI TECHNOLOGY for EROSION CONTROL 

  • very fast planting process (many hectars per day);

doesn’t need:

−      top soil (seeds can grow on any lithotype)

−      plastic and natural materials like geo-grids, geotextile meshes, natural fibre nets, mulch, bonded wood-fibre matrices, and so on;

  • safety planting process;
  • natural and non-toxic materials, simple and safety machines;
  • maintenance works like irrigation, fertilization and grass cutting are not neccessary;
  • protects water capturing and control systems (e.g. drainage systems, ditches, trench drains), keeping them clean and efficient, avoiding clogging and eliminating maintenance works;
  • antierosion efficiency improves over time;
  • re-profile work of the slope needs (if it is possible) only a course-grained soil surface finish;
  • a zero-maintenance technique;
  • able to facilitate re-naturalization and ecological succession by incorporating any desired seed of flowers, shrubs or trees;
  • able to capture CO2 up to 400% more than common grassy plants
  • capable to reduce, with respect to traditional techniques:

– up to 100 times the weight of required materials

– up to 10 times the energy requirements

– up to 10 times polluting emissions (CO2  CO  NOx  SOx  particulate)

– on-site working times and site-related risks

– up to 50% of economical costs
