Installation Examples

BLACK GEONETS REGREENED AND FLOWERED: On motorway A6 Torino-Savona geonets were installed about 15 years ago. No regreening possible with traditional techniques

BLACK GEONETS REGREENED AND FLOWERED: On motorway A6 Torino-Savona geonets were installed about 15 years ago. No regreening possible with tradidional techniques.

On motorway A6 Torino-Savona at km 100 geonets were installed, about 15 years ago, to protect slopes from erosion. Slopes were totally bare, and since then they did not develop any kind of vegetation. In 2011, the technicians of the Motorway decided to test Prati Armati® with the aim to try to re-green the most critical slope. After a few months from sowing, the soil is now remarkably covered by green and flowers, completely masking the rockfall protection kits and black geonets that for years have negatively characterized the highway.

SLOPE LANDFILL: RENATURATION OF A SLOPE LANDFILL IN SICILY

Emergency intervention for a slope landfill safety in Sicily, obtained by seeding deep roots grasses of PRATI ARMATI®
This technology may provide a quick and inexpensive solution for the emergency safety of this type of landfills. These actions fall into the category of techniques "in situ", ie without handling or removal of contaminated soil and waste.

REGREENING OF SLOPES OF ORGOSOLO DAM (SARDINIA ISLAND)

SLOPES REGREENING OF DAM IN SARDINIA ISLAND that withstanded the flood during november 2013. The flood was so strong that even civil works were damaged.

MOTORWAY A3 SALERNO-REGGIO (SOUTHERN ITALY)

Installation in one of the most important Italian infrastructures, on difficult lithotypes of various types.

MOTORWAY A3 SALERNO-REGGIO (SOUTHERN ITALY), PRATI ARMATI stopped erosion and allowed a fast renaturalization. 100.000 square meters of flowered slopes

LIMESTONE QUARRY IN SPOLETO (UMBRIA REGION)

Renaturtion of a limestone quarry in Spoleto (Umbria region) implemented on almost vertical rocky walls, without watering or use of top soil

RECLAMATION-RECOVERY OF QUARRIES-MINES-LANDFILLS

Renaturation of an abandoned quarry in Lentini (Sicily island), obtained without watering and without use of topsoil, biomats, geonets, geomats, geocells, mulch, wood fiber matrix sheets, etc..

The environmental restoration of contaminated sites and old landfills often turn out to be very difficult, mainly because plant species used for the renaturation of sterile and/or contaminated soils don’t take roots easily.  Over the years several techniques have been developed for soil protection and renaturation.  Among these there is an emerging innovative technology that uses only natural herbaceous perennials plants with deep rooting system, and allows to operate in areas where climatic conditions were until a few years ago considered prohibitive for the development of vegetation: barren lands, altered or fractured rocks, soils treated with addition of lime up to 5% by weight, soil polluted by waste, hydrocarbons and heavy metals in concentrations up to 10 times higher than the upper limits admitted by law. In addition, these herbaceous plants show the ability to withstand high temperatures produced by the fermentation of organic waste in landfills.

ERODIBLE SOIL: good results on soil with prohibitive conditions.

ERODIBLE SOIL: extraordinary result on soil with very high salt content and exposed to weather conditions prohibitive for temperature, wind, rain.
