Organic residues to revive the vegetation: Granilake and Viridis Environmental are bringing nature back to life at the Black Lake mine
Since 2011, Viridis Environment’s professionals have been working hard at the Lac d’Amiante mining site in Black Lake, Quebec. They have been working to develop effective techniques for soil reconstruction and phytoremediation of chrysotile mine tailings piles. At the end of several trials of mixtures of deinking and municipal sludge, Viridis succeeded in its wager!
Recycling in the silvicultural environment consists of spreading residual fertilizer material (MRF) such as, for example, paper or municipal biosolids, on existing plantations or on new tree plantations. The spreading of MRFs in the forest greatly favours the establishment and growth of trees.
