Environmental Engineering

For environmental engineering projects, SAVET has an internal staff of experts who design and develop environmental engineering and vegetation technology projects with the aim of promoting increasing awareness around environmental protection issues. Within the scope of this activity, we also carry out environmental restoration work including land re-vegetation and reforestation services, in full compliance with all applicable standards of reference.

S.A.V.E.T.  provides customers with a complete and precise environmental engineering project, and the efficient and effective implementation of the work in full compliance of all standards of reference.

By definition, Vegetation Technology is a technical science that uses living plants or parts thereof to intervene efficiently to restore waterways, river banks and slopes, thus reducing the erosion of escarpments due to natural elements and land degradation resulting from natural causes (hydrogeological instability)  or anthropic activities (quarries, refuse disposal sites or infrastructures).  Such techniques are characterized by limited environmental impact and are essentially based on the biotechnical characteristics of certain types of plants, which may basically be summarized in the capacity to grow an extensive root system and a high vegetative propagation capacity. These living materials may also be used alongside natural biodegradable materials (wood, plants or parts of plants, cuttings, coconut fibers, jute, straw, biomats, etc.) and other materials such as stones, iron or synthetic materials in various combinations (geotextiles, etc.), to reinforce the work and increase durability.

Merely by way of example, the areas where Vegetation Technology may be applied include: 

  • Soil conservation in general: landslide management, stabilization, reclamation and ecological requalification of natural slopes subject to hydrogeological instability;
  • river bank protection work: stabilization and requalification of river banks, lake shores and reservoirs; of banks subject to erosion, including reforestation; construction of weirs and groins; 
  • stabilization of coastal sand dunes; reconstruction of lagoon sandbanks; stabilization of coastlines subject to erosion and sand dune protection;
  • consolidation and stabilization of escarpments along roads and railroads: creation of vegetated noise barriers, noise
  • embankments, vegetated buffer strips; 
  • installation of visual barriers and vegetate camouflage; installation of noise barriers using re-vegetated embankments, installation of vegetated barriers to contrast the spreading of dust and aerosols;
  • construction of safety reservoirs and filtering ecosystems downstream from water discharge systems (sewage systems);



habitat reconstruction, stabilization and ecological requalification of denuded slopes resulting from infrastructural works;

creation of new ecosystems capable of increasing local or territorial biodiversity and/or providing opportunities for environmental fruition.
