The revegetation of exposed and vulnerable slopes is not only aesthetically more pleasing, but ecologically better.
Vegetation and, if required, surface strengthening, support the recovery of the slope, reducing erosion run-off from slope face degredation. If allowed to continue, this erosion run-off can pollute watercourses and lead to slope failures.
Jinyuan Cements Co. Ltd of Huzhu County of Guizhou recognised this problem and requested technical support from Maccaferri China to address armoured revegetation in their limestone mine in Jinyuan County, Qinghai. Maccaferri double twist mesh rockfall protection netting (8×10 type) was used as a surface stabilisation solution, in conjunction with the Profile sprayed ecological hydromulch.
The combination of the two products enabled the rapid revegetation of the slopes within the mine. The establishing vegetation serves to bind the vulnerable topsoil together and protects it from rainfall impacts.
For Maccaferri the protection of the environment has been a corporate goal since we first offered hydraulic works solutions and erosion protection solutions over 100 years ago.
