The LIFE RIBERMINE project “Fluvial freshwater habitat recovery through geomorphic-based mine ecological restoration in Iberian Peninsula” (LIFE18 ENV / ES / 000181), has an estimated duration of 4 ½ years (September 2019 to March 2024) and an AFTER-LIFE continuity plan of 5 years.

LIFE RIBERMINE is based on a multidisciplinary approach, in areas affected by mining activities in the Iberian Peninsula, where pioneering techniques of geomorphological restoration (GeoFluv-Natural Regrade and Talus ROYAL®) are combined with landscape evolution models (SIBERIA) and revegetation with native species. It is intended to promote a complete environmental recovery which recreates the original landscapes, having positive impacts on the soils, on the cleaning of contaminated waters and on the quality of riparian habitats.
