About the Project

The main goal of the RIGA project is the implementation of new irrigation systems based on standard polyolefin grades, with new functionalities such as anti-microbial and anti-roots (trifluralin free), which allow increasing their functionality up to the end of their shelf-life (up to 50% higher) and contributes to water consumption reduction (up to 5% due to less pipe cleaning is required for correct performance), in comparison with the current systems in the market. The new developed systems will be cost-competitive, safer for animals and plants and environmental friendly (since non toxic substances with herbicide activity will be employed).
