Italy: Clean Energy derived from olives and grapevines in Chianti

Tuscany’s 12 hills to become centre of biomass production – Chianti could become a production centre for renewable biomass energy thanks to an abundance of vegetable by-products from the cultivation of olives and grapes, in addition to livestock and wood farming.

The University of Florence already has an experimental project in place to study eventual uses of agricultural by-products.

The energy could be utilized in an effort to make business self-sufficient or on a larger scale in the construction of district heating factories.

Initial results obtained at the Villa Mondeggi – an agriculture company owned by the Florence Provinces – prove that the region is at the forefront with regard to renewable energy.

Other examples include the biomass and district heating generators in Calenzano and Londa.
