Ecobasalto engages in the processing and marketing of ornamental stone and basalt sett paving.

The stones used are from the Malhadinha Quarry (Madeira Inerte) and are subject to a strict selection process.

About Us

Ecobasalto started its activity in October 2005 in basalt processing and marketing.

It is located in the Malhadinha quarry, where, in cooperation with the company Madeira Inerte, it carries out an optimized selection of raw-material in accordance to the purpose. Currently with specialized employees and equipment and modern premises, Ecobasalto meets its clients’ demands, allowing for there to be a reduction in the cost of production.

The Malhadinha Basalt, already known commercially due to its use in pavements and cladding can be transformed to an ample variety of products for different uses and applications. Through the cut and differentiated selection of the pieces, its application can be carried out in any environment or surface.
As it is one of the most resistant materials to ware and ruptures, Malhadinha Basalt is the most appropriate stones for pavements and cladding both indoors and outdoors.
