CONVENIO UMH COMPOSTAJE DE LODOS

Agreement with Miguel Hernández University for research into sludge composting

The aim of this project is to optimise the processes of managing urban waste from seaweed and sea wrack through low-cost sustainable management strategies. The product could be reused in the maintenance of parks and gardens in the municipality, to partially replace the consumables that are currently purchased. This would have a positive environmental impact on the recycling of organic waste.

RECUPERACIÓN DE FAUNA EN OPERACIÓN DE VACIADO DEL PARQUE LA MARJAL

Recovery of fauna in the operation of emptying the La Marjal Park

After the torrential rains in Alicante in March 2017, major clean-up work was needed in the La Marjal Park so that it could be used by people again.

To ensure the ecological recovery of the park (which had an excellent ecological balance before the torrential rains), Aguas de Alicante selectively removed species prior to cleaning. This allowed the ecological balance to be recovered quickly after the work.
