Due to its large size, Western Australia experiences a very diverse climate. Some areas in the state enjoy tropical weather, others are dry and arid, while many regions have a Mediterranean climate. There is a common denominator for all places, though — all are affected by climate change.
Climate change continues to impact many regions in the world, and Western Australia is not an exception. Over the years, the state has experienced an increase in the average and maximum temperatures, had more extended drought periods, and faced more extreme weather events. All of these occurrences bring constant threats to the locals.
Erizon is fully aware of the ecological problems brought about by climate change. To minimise the harmful consequences it causes, Erizon offers environmental solutions such as dust suppression, soil stabilisation, and revegetation. The methods we employ are scientific and tailor-made for every specific site issue. Thus, we guarantee positive and long-term outcomes.
Many ecosystems in Western Australia are sensitive to climatic parameters. Climatic factors — such as temperature and rainfall — affect much of the living conditions in the state.
For instance, Western Australia has suffered from a significant reduction in the amount of rainfall it receives. This decline in the precipitation rate subsequently causes a decrease in the state’s groundwater resources and water supplies — reducing water availability and thus productivity. Besides that, many regions of Western Australia are now characterised by shallow streams and dry, barren lands as a result of reduced rainfall.
Adding to the list of the environmental concerns created by climate change is the increase in temperatures experienced by the state. This escalation in global warming largely influences the frequency of bushfires, length of droughts, and the quality and salinity of soils in Western Australia.
Climate change also alters many biochemical processes in aquatic ecosystems. Extreme temperatures are not favourable for some species adapted for colder climates. Thus, many organisms die when these habitat changes occur.
Unfortunately, climate change alters not only ecosystems but also the intensity and frequency of extreme weather events like floods, cyclones, and erosion. For coastal areas in the state, sea-level rise also continues to accelerate, resulting in more frequent coastal flooding.
Climate change continually carries peril for local communities, ecosystems, and industries.
On a positive note, however, there are a lot of ways to mitigate climate change. For example, a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions can decrease the percentage of global warming. Another way is to invest in effective and comprehensive revegetation programs.
Trees can absorb and store massive amounts of carbon dioxide from the air and then release oxygen in the atmosphere. Planting trees, therefore, can reduce carbon dioxide emissions that heighten global warming.
The Government of Western Australia has, over the past years, conducted numerous studies to increase the state’s resilience to climate change. The reports of these studies become the basis for awareness programs for public information and instruction.
In 2003, there was a published article about the opportunities for the Western Australia land management sector. The paper reported that reforestation of the state’s agricultural lands could sequester a maximum of 2,091 mega tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents.
Large-scale and highly targeted revegetation of cleared farmlands can provide more carbon sinks to the environment. They also offer other advantages such as better management of dryland salinity, land degradation, and biodiversity loss.
The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development has also developed guidelines on how to revegetate small properties and areas of land.
Although research and information campaigns are essential to understand and develop solutions, experts who can execute these solutions and recommendations are equally necessary. Erizon, composed of soil scientists and engineers, continuously study, formulate, and carry-out environmental solutions that produce 100% positive results.
Erizon is the industry leader in solving environmental concerns in Australia. We offer long-term and scientific revegetation solutions to areas heavily impacted by climate change.
To ensure success, we employ a ‘Supply, Apply, and Guarantee’ approach in our revegetation strategy.
First, we supply products and services founded in science and long years of field experience. We have a team of leading agronomists, horticulturists, microbiologists, and soil scientists who continually innovate and formulate solutions to revegetate even the most depleted and degraded soils in Australia.
At the beginning of each project, we conduct a site analysis to identify specific site conditions and problems. We then bring the soil samples to our laboratory for a more extensive soil analysis. From there, our experts choose the best type of plant species suited for the specific site.
Then, our highly experienced and trained technicians apply our premium products to the soil evenly. To do this, we utilise modern and advanced technologies and equipment — 3D agricultural drones, hydro trucks and hydro trailers, and air tractors. Each of our projects also comes with a tailored Quality Management Plan and an Inspection and Test Plan to identify project specifications and requirements.
These end-to-end solutions provide a guarantee to each of our clients. We make sure all of our interventions can deliver positive outcomes and ensure client satisfaction.
One of our premium products — EnviroSprout — is an advanced solution to revegetating different areas of land. It promotes long-term soil health and effectively prevents weed infestation. EnviroSprout is also an eco-friendly approach as it can minimise water requirements efficiently.
Compared to conventional direct seeding and drill seeding methods, EnviroSprout can revegetate even the most difficult to reach terrains and slopes. However, it works best in large areas where quality soil and irrigation already exists.
EnviroSprout consists of interlocking grids that secure the soil together to reduce displacement and stabilise embankments and batters. Its mechanism incorporates hydrological and mechanical methods to reinforce the soils, enhancing their ability to overcome erosion. EnviroSprout also increases the rate of water infiltration into the ground.
Since EnviroSprout includes a green dye, it is highly visible to technicians. Thus, it can be easily sprayed and evenly applied. Through this, over-spraying is avoided, while aerial application becomes possible.
For 25 years now, Erizon has provided unparalleled revegetation services in Australia. We have combined innovation with science and technology to deliver results that work.
At Erizon, we believe that there is no such thing as a ‘one size fits all’ solution. We fully understand that each site is unique and thus needs a specific and tailored solution. Therefore, we always make sure to customise our solutions according to specific site conditions and each of our project’s needs and goals.
We also do extensive project monitoring to make sure of every detail and guarantee positive outcomes.
Erizon believes in excellence and innovation. We continually produce products backed up with extensive research and scientific principles. We also employ advanced technologies and modern equipment to ensure the best results.
All in all, our ultimate goal is to make Western Australia a safer place to live. We invite you to invest also in this vision. Partner with us today.
