Bio- and Green Engineering (sometimes known as Habitat Creation) represents a specific know-how and adequate usage of plant material. These are then used as the basis to solve environmental problems. Problems like purification of water (phyto-remediation), soil stabilisation (Green Engineering) or even issues with contaminating elements. In that case we speak about phyto-stablisation.
In soil stabilisation, or green engineering, you need to be aware that the full effect will show over time. That’s because the plants need to grow and develop their roots on-site. Hence when the jobsite is concluded, there’s still some time needed to optimize the effect.
In bio-engineering It’s quite common to use a mix of living plant species and inert structures that are 100% biodegradable. Like geo-nets, fascines, cuttings etc. Clearly, their only goal is to “secure” the new site until the vegetation has sufficiently developed. And from then onwards it takes over the task of stabilizing the soil.
Euro-Tec is one of the historical European operators in bio- and green engineering. We offer a complete and global range of products. Our reputation is founded on 3 Cornerstones: Experience, Quality and Availability.
