Criado y López is always on the move to improve and innovate; as a result our Research and Development Department strives to improve its products and applications.

  • We improve our process performance by minimising manufacturing and fabric elaboration defects.

Characterization of the products of Criado and López:

  • Assessment of durability and stretch curve of the materials over time, and after the exposure to weather conditions.
  • Measurement of the interaction with solar radiation, by studying the transmission and diffusion of light.
  • Its behaviour when exposed to rain.

We develop innovative and high-performance products, by measuring parameters through selected or designed devices for this purpose and in collaboration with qualified bodies such as universities, research institutes or companies.

PROYECT ECOHORTITEC

Criado y López S.L. has carried out the project "DEVELOPMENT OF ECOINNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES FOR THE IMPROVEMENT AND OPTIMIZATION OF PRODUCTION AND POST-HARVEST SYSTEMS IN INTENSIVE HORTICULTURAL CROPS - ECOHORTITEC".

The main objective of the project has been to develop a new range of technological solutions that are integrated and applicable in intensive horticultural production systems and that allow farmers and producers to obtain more profitable, more sustainable and cleaner productions.

PROYECT TEXTnoINSECTS

Criado y López is developing the project "DEVELOPMENT OF NEW PROPERTIES FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF NON-WOVEN TEXTILES USED AS PHYSICAL BARRIERS - TEXTnoINSECTS".

The objective of this project is to add a new effect to the physical barriers used in agriculture to control pests, incorporating an anchoring system that simplifies the operations of installation and removal of the crop.

PROYECT S3

Criado y López S.L. develops the project "INTEGRATED MANAGEMENT SYSTEM OF TASTY, SUSTAINABLE AND HEALTHY TOMATO - S3".

The project's general objective is to provide farmers with the necessary tools to grow a tomato that differs from the rest in a healthy character, as well as due to its organoleptic characteristics and the sustainability of the cultivation system.

PROYECTO IRRGEO

Criado y López S.L. develops the project "INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY TO IMPROVE THE USE OF IRRIGATION WATER IN THE MEDITERRANEAN REGION USING GEOTEXTILE MATERIAL - IRRGEO".

The main objective is to develop a differentiating irrigation technology that allows to save water and maximize the efficiency of the application of such a precious resource. For this, we investigate the effectiveness of different geotextile materials, to achieve a new organic geotextile material with which we manage to control soil evaporation and enhance water conservation, weed control and the distribution of water in the soil.
