Volterra Ecosystem S.L.

Volterra Ecosystem S.L.

Volterra, based in Barcelona and Palencia, is a recent joint-venture between Transfer Latin Business Consultancy SL and Blonk Quality Ingredients SL, both based in Spain. Volterra aims to restore ecosystems through innovative agro and forestry techniques in Spain. We offer a proven integral management approach with a healthy soil as the basis for successful regeneration of both rain fed and irrigated croplands. A well designed agroforestry system is resilient and not only restores degraded areas but also generates multiple ecosystem services. We believe that landscape restoration offers large untapped opportunities for sustainable economic development.

Volterra has the experience to restore degraded areas into healthy soils through the implementation of specific projects where trials of reforestation and soil improvement are approached in an integral way. We have performed large-scale landscape restoration with local farmers, land-users and experts, based on sustainable agroforestry practices and novel technologies. We have proven that implementing these projects we do not only provide positive economic returns to the area but also transfer knowledge in practice which brings back jobs and generates multiple business activities in those areas.

We also have extensive experience in conducting campaigns to increase local awareness and lead EU projects. The company is currently active in a Horizon 2020 project: FTI Pilot - 2015 - 1 Grant Agreement Nº 700615 "FTI Cocoon" and 3 LIFE projects, namely LIFE15/ENV/UK/386 -Laser Fence, LIFE15/CCA/ES/125-The Green Link and LIFE16 / CCM / GR / 044 - Biomass C+.

Furthermore, we have the backup of the founders’ joint participation in 8 other LIFE projects (LIFE09/ENV/ES/447 -The Green Deserts, LIFE10/ENV/ES/471 -Crops for better soils, LIFE11/ENV/ES/535 - Operation CO2, LIFE12/ENV/ES/902 -Zero Residues, LIFE13/ ENV/ES/1362 -Fresh Box, LIFE13/ENV/ES/1513 - Coop2020, LIFE14/ENV/ES/486 –Multibiosol, and LIFE14/ENV/ES/640 -Smart Fertirrigation).
