Bio engineering

The bio engineering uses life or dead plants (or a portion of them) as well as other dead material (e.g., stones, tree trunk, wood, geotextile) to solve engineering issues: erosion control, soil stabilization and restoration. Therefore, the bio engineering can be defined as a toolkit with lo environmental impact, used to contemporarily improve the soil and the environment.

IRIDRA's projects adopt bio engineering everytime is needed a slope or soil stabilization, despite particular conditions requesting conventional engineering solutions
