Proposal titleDevelopment of vegetation media made from renewable raw materials for

reclamation of eroded Mediterranean areas in combination with reuse of treated

waste water

AbstractErosion is a problem of global dimensions. In Europe especially the Mediterranean

countries are affected. The objective of the project is to develop media forsimultaneous

prevention of erosion and the ehancement of a vegetation cover. Thevegetation media

will be made from locally grown raw materials. Special focus willbe the improvement of the

plate's ability to draw humidity from the air. Fieldtests will be made locally. A specified

irrigation system using treated wastewater will be developed especially for application of

the media under aridconditions. The media are planned to be produced by regional

enterprises andmarketed for covering roadside slopes, devastated mining areas and other

purposes.Additionally to the positive effects directly on the environment also positive

results are expected on employment. Overproduction of food can be reduced byalternative

products. Other aspects of a positive regional development will alsobe covered.
