THE United Nations has recognised Loglogic as the best in the world in its field.

The UN looked worldwide for suppliers of equipment for a conservation project in Europe’s largest natural wetlands. And it placed its order with Loglogic, the world’s leading manufacturer of reed harvesting and wetland management vehicles.

Now, Loglogic’s world-beating technology is being used in Belarus to help turn the Zvanec and Sporaῡskaepeatlands into a sustainable environmental resource for local communities. At the same time, it is protecting endangered birds such as the aquatic warbler, which has its largest nesting sites within the wetlands, great snipe, and curlew.

Incredibly, Loglogic may also be helping to mitigate the effects of climate change as the UN and European Union-backed project looks for ways to restore peatlands following the loss through drainage of more than half of all wetlands in Belarus in the past 60 years. In winter temperatures of -18degrees, the Belarussians are using a LoglogicSoftrak to help harvest 500 hectares a year of reeds and other vegetation for production of heating briquettes and pellets and also for roofing materials. Softraks already operate in many of the world’s most environmentally-sensitive areas because their ground pressure is just one-quarter of the average human footstep. The vehicle’s softly-softly design avoids destroying flora and fauna over which it travels, and it is especially useful in wetlands because it can work in up to 35 cm (14 inches) of water. Closer to home, Softraks can currently be seen in use on the Somerset Levels, the Norfolk Broads, and the Anglesey Fens.

Loglogic director Graham Mitchell, who spent a week in Belarus training conservation staff to use the Softrak, said: “We export all over the world but the Belarus project is the first where we’ve been directly involved in mitigating climate change.

“After the world’s oceans, soil is the largest carbon pool on the planet, with peat soils being the richest.

“So, restoring peatlands in Belarus stops the degradation of soil and slows the release of carbon, thereby proving to be one of the best ecosystem-based climate change mitigation approaches that can be used.”
