The POREM project aims to DEMONSTRATE the efficiency of applying innovative and low-cost technologies for restoration of degraded soils, low organic matter soils, and soils in semiarid areas. Particularly, we intend to demonstrate the applicability of poultry manure, treated according to EP 1314710 with the Vegetable Active Principles (VAP). It's a new technique that goes beyond soil fertilization and soil amendment and a new way of collocation for poultry manure, usually produced in restricted areas and often considered a waste difficult to dispose of.
This project demostrates the improving of degraded soil properties through application of processed poultry manure - the so called POREM bioactivator. Experimental results from three types of degraded agricultural soils will be compared: semi-arid soils of the Murcia (ES) and Apulia (IT) regions and the exhausted soils in the Uherské Hradiště region (CZ). The project aims to support public awareness, transferability, and replicability of the described technology by means of technical trainings and informative workshops. For this purpose, all available information media active on local, national, or European scale will be utilized throughout the entire course of the project. The critical objectives of the project include: 1) to provide local authorities, active in the area of soil reclamation/restoration, with sufficient and relevant tools for the optimizing of soil restoration policies and agricultural management strategies, 2) to implement projects translating these policies in practice, and 3) to identify and involve all relevant stakeholders related to soil management, integrating social, environmental, and economic components of the active soil restoration.
