The reconstitution pedotechnique is a process based on the treatment of organic and nonorganic matrices for restoring ecosystem and agroforestry functions of soils and for producing specific Technosols. The technology applies a conceptual model based on the production of new soil aggregates with targeted environmental and soil characteristics generated via a chemical–mechanical process that entails reusing residues of a specific origin. The activity is consistent with the principles of circular economy, applying restoration ecology and valorization of compatible waste and saving nonrenewable resources. The applications of reconstitution technology are aimed at different kinds of interventions; this paper presents the results obtained on experimental plots and in four medium-sized works. The results, which are of particular environmental and pedological interest, recognize this pedotechnique as a specific method for tackling the problems of loss of agroforestry surface area, soil degradation and desertification.

Abstract

The reconstitution pedotechnique is a process based on the treatment of organic and nonorganic matrices for restoring ecosystem and agroforestry functions of soils and for producing specific Technosols. The technology applies a conceptual model based on the production of new soil aggregates with targeted environmental and soil characteristics generated via a chemical–mechanical process that entails reusing residues of a specific origin. The activity is consistent with the principles of circular economy, applying restoration ecology and valorization of compatible waste and saving nonrenewable resources. The applications of reconstitution technology are aimed at different kinds of interventions; this paper presents the results obtained on experimental plots and in four medium-sized works. The results, which are of particular environmental and pedological interest, recognize this pedotechnique as a specific method for tackling the problems of loss of agroforestry surface area, soil degradation and desertification.
