Working with nature to protect the environment
The LIMNOS Company is engaged in research, development and application of natural ecosystems for the protection and restoration of the environment.
From the initial research in the field of aquatic ecosystems and development of wastewater treatment by constructed wetlands (CW), the company’s activities have extended to the provision of sustainable solutions to the environmental problems arising from human activities. The LIMNOS solutions for the restoration and protection of the environment that take into account the significance, structure and functioning of ecosystems, are called ECOREMEDIATIONS (ERM).
For the development of the innovative technology of constructed wetlands, the LIMNOS Company received a prominent EUREKA Lillehammer Award, which was also mentioned in the “Slovenia – Country of Excellence” promotional poster. In addition to this award, the company was rewarded, at the European level, for sustainable rehabilitation of landfill sites and conditioning of polluted drinking water sources.
The Company is currently developing various new ecoremediation technologies, such as the methods for the protection of water sources, ecoremediations in the NATURA 2000 areas, etc.
The LIMNOS Company has been operating and providing its products and services at home and abroad. In research work, the company’s experienced employees cooperate with several organisations and educational establishments in Slovenia and Europe. As a means of environmental protection, ERM is incorporated in education programmes of secondary schools and universities in Slovenia and the countries of South Eastern Europe.
The guiding principle our development and work is: “WORKING WITH NATURE TO PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT”.
The endless combination possibilities of living and inanimate nature components allow us to deliver solutions adapted to different ecological, climatic and economic conditions.
- LIMNOWET® constructed wetlands
- Vegetative buffer zones (and filters)
- Ecoremediation–revitalization of watercourses
- Ecoremediation of standing waters
- Ecoremediation of degraded soils and sediments
- Other environmental services
- Project tender applications
- Environmental education
Conscious of the need for constant development and upgrading of the existing methods, products and services, the LIMNOS Company has established two research groups (Water Ecology Group and Group for ecoremediations) and registered them at the Slovenian Research Agency.
Through the participation in national and international research and development projects, we further develop and upgrade our services and products. In this process we collaborate with many research institutions, companies and universities at home and abroad. The results of our research work reflect in numerous scientific articles in renowned international magazines and conferences and above all in nature conservation projects.
