SOWINGPEAT

The service we offer involves spraying an aqueous mixture of seeds, mulch, fertilizers and adhering substances onto the ground. It is easy to apply on a large scale because we use specialized mechanical means (hydroseeders) equipped with pumping systems, frequently used in gardening, slope restoration, mines and quarries.

HYDROCARBON AND CHEMICAL ABSORBENTS

There are different types of absorbents: mineral ones based on clay, such as sepiolites and organic ones, based on peat. The former are abrasive because there are silica crystals in their composition and have less absorption power. The latter have great absorption power and bring substantial benefits to the environment.

Due to its molecular properties and in their natural state, a peat absorbent is oleophilic (it absorbs oils quickly) and hydrophobic (it resists water penetration). In order to increase its absorption process, peat fibers are specially treated to soak up and encapsulate oil, solvents, heavy metals, pesticides and herbicides on contact.
