Biomass, a resource to reduce energetic dependence

Against the dramatic backdrop of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, we must not lose sight of the strategy to decarbonise Europe. At the invitation of the FREE (Renewable Sources and Energy Efficiency) Coordination, a group of experts met to discuss the italian energy model

Supplies alarm: the agro-energetic alternative

The conflict between Russia and Ukraine is taking its toll in human, economic and social terms. In addition to the direct consequences of the war, there are also the consequences of rising agri-food prices caused by soaring fuel and fertiliser prices. Circular economy and renewable sources are key to combating food insecurity and energy prices

Italian forests, a strategical asset

Italy finally has a precise National Forest Strategy (NFS). The document produced by MiPAAF in collaboration with other competent Ministries will be a tool for the benefit of the forest heritage in the collective interest of Italy. The strategic objective will be to ensure productive and sustainable management of Italy's forests, which are rich in biodiversity and able to contribute to mitigation and adaptation to the climate crisis. In addition to ecological benefits, positive social and economic effects are expected for rural and mountain communities, for today's citizens and for future generations

GESTA project: eco-sustainable land management in Abruzzo

The Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Forestry aims to promote the multifunctionality of the forest and the sustainable use of renewable resources in rural areas. With this in mind, it will finance 27 projects throughout Italy that will implement concrete actions for the proper management of the mountain and inland forestry areas. One of the proposals approved by a committee of experts is the GESTA project, which in Abruzzo has brought together 28 stakeholders including administrations, associations and operators in the primary sector

An EU strategy for soil protection

Soil is not an easily renewable resource and it takes more than two thousand years to form just 10 cm of fertile soil. In a strategy document, the European Commission intends to give soil the same level of protection as the atmosphere, water and marine environment. This Strategy, which will be an integral part of the implementation of the European Green Deal, recognises that healthy soils contribute to a number of EU climate, biodiversity and economic goals. This major challenge requires inclusive and broad governance arrangements at the national, EU and global level

Bioenergy and ecological transition

Bioenergy should be recognised as having the capacity to reduce energy dependence by replacing fossil fuels with those derived from residual biomass, which is useful in terms of circularity. Short supply chains for the supply and exploitation (energy and/or industrial) of biomass stimulate the local economy, especially for mountain and rural areas, thanks to the national industry that expresses excellence in the manufacture of machinery and the provision of services

Capraia, a laboratory for agricultural mechanics

The Capraia Smart Island Project, supported by FederUnacoma since its activation in 2017, is progressing. The component "Circular Economy and Sustainable Agriculture", pays attention and resources to the green management of the small Mediterranean Islands. An essential contribution to the affirmation of agroecology can also come from using machines suited to the specifics of the local context

GREENITALY 2017, x ray of a growing sector

A GreenItaly 2017 survey on the state of the green economy in Italy was made public in Rome. The document shows the remarkable growth of the sector in the country which extends from renewable energy sources, green recycling in all the Made in Italy areas and the substantial fallout for job creation

ENABLING, an European project for Green Economy

From next December, FederUnacoma, in partnership with Itabia – Italian Biomass Association – will coordinate an European project aimed at promoting the use of natural and renewable raw materials for a zeroimpact industry. In this field, a significant synergy between several production sectors, the world of research and political bodies, will make a determined push to succeed in innovative markets
