For over twenty years, we have provided expertise, services and products in the field of reclamation and restoration of devastated soils and landscapes for more than 55,000 ha of various soils and substrates and we have participated numerous scientific studies on soils, water and biomass. Our network now operates under the name of W&S Water and Soil Management International GmbH. In addition to our focus on reclamation, we are currently more actively involved in halting desertification, because we are certain that we can act sustainably and make a significant contribution in this area. Our company focus is on controlling desertification and sustainable soil and water management as well as the cycles of materials that these processes entail and our goal is to develop appropriate strategies for action.
A typical saline landscape
High salinity at the soil surface is a problem in many regions. There are many different causes, from intensive agriculture and evaporation of water to dehydration of entire lakes. We use state-of-the-art equipment and methods to remove the salts from the surface and reclaim the landscape.
Typical environmental damage resulting from crude oil activities
Remediation of areas with extensive environmental damage, such as from the exploration and extraction of oil and gas, is possible using our efficient and proven techniques and can be carried out on site in a safe and environmentally-friendly manner. Our methods range from widespread in situ measures involving specialised technologies to construction of soil treatment centres.
