Volterra, based in Barcelona and Palencia, was established in 2015 and is a joint-venture between Transfer Consultancy and Blonk Quality Ingredients, both based in Spain. Volterra aims to restore degraded 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.
The company also has extensive experience in conducting campaigns to increase local awareness; an example is the founders’ joint participation in 11 LIFE+ projects and 1 Horizon 2020 project (FTI Cocoon).
