CODRA Mediterranea s.r.l., has been dealing with environmental recovery for over fifteen years, investing private resources to acquire and develop know-how and advanced technologies in the environmental sector in general and the restoration of degraded environments in particular, also thanks to scientific and professional collaboration with research institutes, universities and public and private, national and international scientific centers.
The Center designs and patents innovative environmental recovery interventions aimed at the reconstruction of dune and retrodunal cords in the fight against desertification, or the consolidation of soil and hydrogeological instability with naturalistic engineering systems, the purification of water through the exclusive use of plants, or even forestation and reforestation projects for medium and large areas to combat the increase in the greenhouse effect.
Over the last few years, the attention paid to safeguarding biodiversity has been growing more and more and they have become aware of the need to adopt suitable measures to protect the habitats of origin of the species at risk (in situ conservation, ie directly within the original habitat) and where this is not possible, due to already seriously compromised situations, to adopt ex situ conservation (outside the original habitat) of the endemic germplasm. Foreseeing this, CODRA Mediterranea has, for years, equipped itself with its own Bank of Germplasm, a state-of-the-art facility that allows the ex situ conservation, in the medium and long term, of endemic germplasm in latent living conditions.
Moreover, the company is equipped with nursery structures suitable for the reproduction and multiplication of native species as well as shrub and tree species of forest and ornamental interest.
The nursery has directed its production towards highly specialized material, locally sourced and guaranteed by the company quality system so as to have ecotype productions with ecological characteristics suitable for the site of future destination. The modern nursery structure, also makes use of greenhouses attached to the nursery, consisting of large air-conditioned structures capable of reproducing environmental conditions suitable for species whose optimum is different from that present in the external environment of the nursery.
