Sols et Paysages

Très bel ouvrage, écrit par deux passionnés, détaillant les relations entre paysages et types de sols sur une douzaine d’exemples différents.

Ce livre écrit par deux universitaires est très agréable à lire et explique en détails les principaux types de sols que l’on trouve en Europe et leur incidence sur la végétation et l’utilisation des terrains correspondants.

Cet ouvrage décrit de façon détaillée un grand nombre de sols en croisant les observations sur le terrain, les analyses en laboratoire et en s’appuyant sur la bibliographie et l’expérience des deux auteurs. A partie de ces données sont expliquées la formation du sol et ses incidences sur la végétation et l’exploitation des terrains correspondants.

L’incidence de l’habitat, de l’agriculture, de l’exploitation du sous-sol sont prises en compte ainsi que leurs incidences sur le sol.

Une autre partie traite plus en profondeur les usages du sol qu’ils soient urbains, forestiers, agricoles, viticoles ou autres.

Ce livre est abondamment illustré de photos et croquis.

Il s’adresse à tout professionnel ou futur professionnel dans ce domaine ou dans des domaines proches (agriculture, exploitations forestières ou minières…) mais aussi à toute personne convaincue de l’importance du sol et de l’impératif de le protéger.

Very strong growth in Internet sales of wheels for mirrors machines.

Vedip, the first European web site (French origin) Internet sales of Italian wheels for mirrors machines saw its revenues for the second 2019 quarter  increased by more than 67 %.

The strategy developed by Vedip to propose, in partnership with a leading Italian manufacturers of wheels and diamond core drills for glass, very competitive prices  for working only on the Internet, detailed fact sheets with photos, standard wheels made by manufacturers / Machines / Positions, alternative wheels and a telephone support seems to meet the needs of the market in Europe mirrors.

The site already has 1741 tools now online  continues  to improve the technical data of the tools and the number of referenced machinery (over a hundred).

On Vedip you can view the data sheets (with photos and price) of the wheels for the main flat glass processing machines of the market (straight line edging machines, CNC, drills, double edger, chamfering ...) and the most important suppliers (Intermac, Bovone, Glaston, Bavelloni, Lattuada, Schiatti, JANBAC Baudin, Battelino, Denver, Bimatech, Ada, Besana, Bottero ....).

1. The name of the Geographical Indication

"Marble Stones of Rhône-Alpes"

2. The product (s) concerned

The Marbrières Stones of Rhône-Alpes are limestones formed in the Jurassic era and the Lower Cretaceous era, extracted in quarries located in a geographical area defined in point 3.

As an indication, the average values ​​of the physical and mechanical characteristics of the main Stones Marbrières of Rhône-Alpes are:

• Density value (NF EN 1936): between 2500 kg / m3 and 2810 kg / m3

• Open porosity value (NF EN 1936): between 0.3% and 3.0%;

• Flexural strength under center load (NF EN 12372): between 9.5 MPa and 23 MPa;

• Compressive strength (either NF EN 1926 or NF EN 772-1): between 139 MPa and 250 MPa;

• Wear resistance (NF EN 14157): between 18 mm and 35 mm.


The non-exhaustive list of different limestone materials that can claim the protection of the IG "Stones Marbrières de Rhône Alpes" is presented below:

• Chandoré Stone / Champdor

• Pierre de Chomérac

• Drom Stone / Revermont Stone / Chandolin Stone

• Grand Corent Stone / Yellow Valore

• Pierre de Hauteville

• Pierre de Labeaume

• Pierre Rocheret / Pierre-Châtel / Silver Roc

• Pierre de Romanèche / Pierre de Hautecourt

• Ruoms stone

• Saint-Baudille stone

• Pierre de Villebois / Montalieu

The geographical indication covers the following products:

at. Raw products: blocks extracted from quarries for cut stone, construction and decoration;

b. Semi-finished products: slices and products being finished;

c. Finished products, classified by family:

 New and old building (massive cut elements, thin elements, etc ...);

 Roads, urban and landscaping (Pavers of all types, slabs of all types, borders of all types, street furniture, landscape furniture, etc ...);

 Funeral (monuments and funerary articles, columbarium, etc ...);

 Any decorative furniture and real estate product (such as interior furniture etc ...).

Made from natural materials produced by extraction and processing processes except for any reconstituted and / or composite materials or products.

The finished product loses Geographical Indication at the first stage of the process outside the geographical area. Finished product means a product that will not be reworked outside the geographical area.

3. The delimitation of the geographical area or the associated determined place

The geographical area of ​​the IG Pierres Marbrières in Rhône-Alpes covers:

• For extraction operations: the departments of Isère (38) and Ain (01) and the department of Ardèche (07);

• For processing operations: all departments in the Rhône-Alpes region (01, 07, 26, 38, 42, 69, 73 and 74).

The extraction and processing operations of the products covered by the IG Pierres Marbrières de Rhône-Alpes must be carried out in this geographical area.

4. Quality, reputation, traditional know-how or other characteristics of the product concerned that can be attributed essentially to that geographical area or specific place, as well as the elements establishing the link between the product and the geographical area or associated determined place


The list below presents the formation dates of each of the Stones Marbrières of Rhône-Alpes:

• Hauteville: Lower Cretaceous - Valanginian - 136 to 140 Ma

• Chandoré: Lower Cretaceous - Valanginian - from 136 to 140 Ma

• Rocheret: Lower Cretaceous - Valanginian - 136 to 140 Ma

• Chomerac: Jurassic - Portlandian (Tithonian) - 145-150 Ma

• Labeaume: Jurassic - Portlandian (Tithonian) - from 145 to 150 Ma

• Ruoms: Jurassic - Portlandian (Tithonian) - from 145 to 150 Ma

• Drom: Jurassic - Portlandian (Tithonian) - from 145 to 150 Ma

• Grand-Corent: Jurassic - Kimmeridgian - from 150 to 155 Ma

• Villebois: Jurassic - Bathonian - from 168 to 166 Ma

• Saint-Baudille: Jurassic - Middle Bajocian - about 170 Ma

The totality of marble limestones of Rhone-Alps comes from marine deposits. These deposits were made in a sea of ​​tropical and shallow type. The hot temperature of the water favored the deposition of limestone (calcium carbonate). This sedimentation is both biodetitic and chemical, hence the presence of oolites. Some of these rocks then very slightly metamorphosed.

With regard to these parameters (richness in calcium carbonate, presence of oolites and a very slight metamorphism) we obtain a hard rock, compact, fairly homogeneous and "taking good polish". These petrographic characteristics are partly the definition of the ancient term "choin" which can be defined by "limestone (or stone) marbrière".
