Simbiosis:

“intimate association of organisms from different species in order to mutually benefit from its vital development”




In ficosterra we understand that the symbiosis between crops and the environment, combined with a circular economy, is the basis of modern agriculture.

Because of this we have developed complex microbes containing algae which significantly increase the transformation of organic waste into highly valuable agricultural assets.

Agrocomposting

Thanks to the combination of algae and microorganisms the ficosterra technology has achieved:
  • Accelerated digestion of organic material
  • Stabilised fermentation processes
  • Elimination of putrefaction processes
  • Elimination of bad odours derived from spontaneous composting
  • Improvement in the quality of wastewater for the metabolization of excess nutrients, obtaining healthier conditions.
  • Faster processes of de-nitrification in the filtering of wastewater


The microorganisms are used to break down organic material into a new energy and food source, accelerating their digestion and avoiding the production of dangerous gasses.

Appling this to organic waste and farms, we are presented with a very high quality compost with an elevated population of regenerative microorganisms whose function is to stabilize the soil’s microbiata.

Thanks to this composting technique we can optimize the potential of the organic material and close the simbiotic agricultural circle sustainably.

Wastewater treatment
The use of ficos technology in wastewater treatment allows us to both regenerate discharge and optimise the operative costs of EDAR. The benefits are clear:

  • Deodorisation
  • Reduction in oxidating processes
  • Increase in biodegradability and reduction in aeration costs
  • Biological stability in sewage treatment

Business consulting services
and public administrations

Ficosterra is a Spanish biotechnology company that develops products, services and solutions for the improvement of agriculture and the remediation of environments with contaminated waters and soils.

Our origins and working philosophy are based on the principles of the circular economy. We rely on a department which studies and develops integral plans in order to get the most out of waste, and advise companies and institutions on the process of transitioning from a linear economic model towards a circular one, where the traditional idea of “take, make use and throw out” is replaced with “re-use, repair, renovate and recycle”. In this way we are mirroring nature, in that everything is used for the purpose of achieving an economy which is sustainable, efficient and much more competitive in its use of resources.
