Peatlands have a tremendous ability to cool the climate. Such wetland ecosystems remove carbon from the carbon cycle by binding and storing. For this reason, peatlands are increasingly appearing in the debate on climate change, as they play a fundamental role as carbon reservoirs, effectively reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
European specialists, recognizing the need to protect valuable wetland ecosystems, are looking for innovative solutions to stop the ongoing degradation. This article discusses the use of modern technologies, such as the use of vinyl fences with a seal in projects aimed at protecting peatlands from drying out. Such innovative methods, although less traditional than historically used natural materials, such as wood, offer many environmental, economic, and practical benefits.
