Since the Limpidh2o® technology does not cause any turbidity, it does not pose any threat to the life of fish and other life forms. The deaths for asphyxiation from excess turbidity along the basins where traditional dredging works are carried out, unfortunately are very frequent. For this reason, until today, most of the world’s basins have been left to be buried: which administrator want to start such an expensive and at the same time unpopular work?
An important critical element when talking about dams is the necessity to stop hydroelectric energy production while dredging: this is always due to old practices that also entail a huge increase in costs for lost revenues.
Limpidh2o® instead does not compromise normal functioning of the basin. Furthermore, the platform, being powered by electricity, becomes completely renewable by directly using part of the energy in exchange on the spot.
The quality of the extracted sediments becomes extremely high, and, in general, such sediments after treatment can be commercialised for construction building or other purposes directly in areas adjacent to the basins, in agreement with quarry operators.
The history of our hydroelectric basins has gone through the first phase of industrial development where there was no awareness of the serious impacts that would have been caused to water bodies by industrial and civil non-purified wastes. Today our rivers can return “silver” after the Limpidh2o® ecodredging, as the famous Tuscan song used to say.
River and basins which are cleaned of the muds recover their stony bottom and recover their natural purifying capacity which, combined with the now almost complete purification network, can really represent a return to a pleasant relationship with the water bodies rather than a repulsive one.
The Limpidh2o® intervention solves environmental issues and allows the fluvial nature to recover its ability to renew the cycle of life every day.
Limpidh2o® technology, being able to isolate heavy metals, is able to recover not only critical and dangerous elements but also many precious materials, or materials that have become such after their excessive consumption during the first industrial era.
