Hot continental climate; 60% of the soils are used as agricultural land, 83% of which is arable. The soils are fertile, in need of frequent irrigation to produce agricultural products. There is a significant presence of cropland and livestock farming.
The large presence of the food and drink industries and associated waste products, such as those from the dairy industry, offers opportunities to recover nutrients and convert them into carbon-rich products to add back to the soil.
The challenge is to considerably reduce high nutrient losses from food production and food waste and increase recycling to farms.
• Application of carbon-rich compounds to winter wheat fields to increase soil organic carbon
• Recovery of carbon-rich compounds for re-use on farms through the application of electrospun nanofibrous membranes for whey separation

In the turbulent waters of the nineties, a company emerged on the market that was founded as a grass root development.
It is a robust plastic structure, which is evidenced by the fact that the tank contains a solution of 20% acid at temperatures reaching even the level of 80 0C.
