The shell is used in 3 ways.

Agriculture :

The Atlantic Limpet shell is a highly sought-after product in the agro-ecological sector. Composed of some 97% calcium carbonate, it also contains the necessary trace elements for plants. It is a real windfall for Breton agriculture as Brittany has acid soil and the earth is in great need of high quantities of limestone in order to allow the cultivation of vegetables. Nothing is wasted in the altantic limpet, every part has its use. Our approach is one of commitment to a green and circular economy.

Animal nutrition:

A calcium supply is necessary for farm animals, and especially for egg-laying hens.

Building material :

The VECOP project has successuly achieved draining pavements using altlantic limpet shells.
