This training presents a very effective strategy that communities, companies and governments should know and apply to deal well with acidic soils, mostly due to the presence of many heavy metals. Three herbs do the work.
- How to use some highly valuable (and diffused) herbs to make acidic soils less harmful
- How to create the right strategy with the involvement of communities which benefit a lo from this work
- How to generate a good amount of new natural energy from the above mentioned herbs
During this training you’ll learn how to use three highly valuable herbs to deal with acidic soils, that are typical of most mining activities. Lavandula, Thymus and Rosmarinus allows to achieve a great result when grown of such soils. Pollutants are no longer able to move from the ground. More than this, the above indicated plants represent a good source of natural energy after the use, which really is an asset. Generally, plants grown on polluted acidic soils should not be considered for energy purposes (e.g. through composting). In this case, things are different: with the addition of the good amendment, natural remediation and energy for free are obtained.
Mining sites are heavily polluted and re-vegetation is one of the most challenging objectives to bring back the life after the cease of operations. However, in this case, we go far beyond. The application of the above mentioned herbs allows to limit at best a very serious threat. Moreover, these herbs can be composted to generate energy, despite the contamination of the soil.
The addition of a simple and easy to apply natural additive makes this possible. The strategy allows communities, companies (from mining sector) and governments to be far more protected by pollution coming from acidic soils.
To be more precise, this solution can be beneficial basically everywhere a similar environmental condition is detected.
The most appropriate herbal species to apply in order to remove the highest load of pollutants from acidic soils; three of them are generally indicated as best options, although some others may perform well if applied.
The importance of setting up the right strategy for making communities an important part of the whole activity, in order to share benefits and, where possible, to re-direct a part of recovered land to energy purposes.
The best possible energy yield after the collection of previously applied herbs; this means that additional energy is available thanks to the application of this herbal species and composting, one more time, is the process of reference for this goal.
This live training focuses the attention on acidic soils (in general) and belongs to the bigger framework called “Remedial Energy For Mining & Heavy Industries”. This very special framework is aimed at bringing the “white” into the “black” of the energy. For this particular training, basically everyone can really benefit from that: from affected communities up to coal industries and policymakers. By applying the proposed guidelines, there is in fact the true opportunity to restore acidic soils and generate new energy with a great effectiveness and convenience.
If you wish, there is the chance of ordering a customized handbook that covers more deeply a specific issue related to other opportunities for generating more energy, cutting environmental costs and solving pollution by acidic soils, with the exclusive use of herbal treatments. This is particularly suggested if you have a good availability of a specific herb or flowering plants, then you need to know what and how these vegetable organisms can be used as remediation tools. To do that, you only need to send us a message and we’ll reply with our proposal.
