EDAFOTEC SAC, a member of Edafotec in Peru, organized last November 14 in the College of Engineers of Peru (San Isidro, Lima) a technical conference related to the subject of acid water treatment using the DAS system. Special guest of the conference was José Miguel Nieto Liñán, Professor of Mineralogy in the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of Huelva and member of the scientific committee of EDAFOTEC. Nieto's presentation described the innovative DAS solution, developed and licensed by the University's Department of Earth Sciences. In May 2019, the University assigned the know-how of the patent to the company Edafotec Suelos a la Carta.  The objective of this patent is the elimination of the high metallic loads within the acid waters that constantly flow in the mining operations, always in an economically viable way. For this, it uses a reactive and permeable filler material at the...

EDAFOTEC SAC is now at your service from its offices at Almirante Lord Nelson 161, Miraflores Lima....

El pasado 26 de septiembre se reunió el consorcio del proyecto MYCOTECNOSOLES II, que tiene como objetivo la elaboración de suelos artificiales inoculados con hongos para descontaminar y convertir en productivos suelos afectados por la extracción de pizarra. La reunión que contó con la presencia de miembros de HIFAS DA TERRA, EDAFOTEC, CVAN y SELGA se realizó con el fin de planificar la presentación de resultados del proyecto, que en la actualidad se encuentra en su año final....

Last Monday, 7 May, at EDAFOTEC we signed a long-term collaboration agreement with the Institute of Geology at the Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), to carry out research and market projects in Mexico. The projects will be specifically developed with Dr Christina Siebe and Blanca Prado, from the institution’s Department of Soil Science, with extensive experience in the of restoration of degraded areas. EDAFOTEC is proud to work with professors Siebe and Prado, throughout our development in the Mexican market....

BIN @, the international network of academic partners and industry dedicated to supporting the creation of a sustainable forum to share good practices and opportunities in innovation, is organising a seminar on Innovation towards the Circular Economy in Porto from 29 to 31 October 2018. Rubén Leboreiro, director of EDAFOTEC has been invited to co-chair one of the panels, Soil Recovery, together with the lecturer from the Mining School of Porto, Cristina Vila. You can find more information about this session and the rest of the interesting programme at https://web.fe.up.pt/~binporto2018/ ...

The agreement signed last January between the Soil and Water Research, Management, Usage and Recovery Group at the Polytechnic University of Cartagena and EDAFOTEC, will focus on sediments dredged in ports as a material for the recovery of degraded or contaminated soils, through their inclusion in artificial soils....

EDAFOTEC Suelos a La Carta has developed the application of artificial soils over gunited slopes, for use in public works. They are applied using hydroseeders or gunite machines that allow flows of varying thicknesses, from a few millimetres to several centimetres, depending on the vegetation cover to be developed. To achieve a correct covering, quantities of 0.4 kilos per square metre and upwards must be applied. As the photographs demonstrate, the specifically designed artificial soils can adhere to near-vertical walls, which due to admixture have no fissures or roughness that facilitate soil adhesion. These artificial soils, in addition, can be pre-germinated with bryophytes or larger plants, which can radically transform the gunited slope in only a few months. Before application                             With artificial soils applied...

In October 2016, the MICOTECHNOSOLS II research project, in which EDAFOTEC is a partner, was approved by the Galician Regional Government within the CONECTAPEME programme.  This project will develop mycorrhized Tecnosoils applications as solutions for quarry and slate site closures.  ...
