It is called Ecomondo and it is the most important fair dedicated Green economy and Round economy (recycling of materials) in the euro area of the Mediterranean.
It represents an interesting observation of the development of environmental technology. And the steps that we have been able to avoid by poisoning us.
It has become apparent that Italy is Europe's leading position industrial recycling: recycled 47 million tonnes of waste, saving energy 17 million tonnes of oil.
And we also find a study the European Commissionthat better product design and waste reuse is sufficient to produce 30 percent of raw material consumption in the next few years, halving greenhouse gas emissions, a 5 percent growth in GDP, will create more than one million jobs.
Ecomondo has also indirectly swapped its suspicions: Frosinone province lacks a great opportunity. And wasting money.
The case is the case of organic waste: the remains of our kitchen. We have had to take them out of the province for a few months, as the Saf factory will no longer be able to work under the new rules. The machines have to be changed, the cycle must be redesigned.
We use the money that we pay on the next invoices for waste taxation. Instead, says Ecomondo, we have the ability to keep these wastes and work at home: small plants in the country can work with residues produced by a few thousands of families.
Nothing extraordinary: it works like a digestive system, the fermentation gases are processed and converted into methane.
Where are the news? Together. Before this type of plant would be convenient, it would have to work tons of waste a day. Which required great structures.
Today is the chance to make very small. If we do not want to do business. But use them for the country's economy or for a small group of countries that gather together.
What does this mean? First, it was necessary to set up a factory and work for the rest of the province, then pump the gas to the national power grid and make money. Today there is enough plant where 5 or 6 people work on the treatment of residues of four or five medium-sized countries using methane in that municipality, in public buildings, for most factories. But it must be willing to buy the pure energy produced by the city.
The challenge is just that. Small size: prevents large speculations from coming out because the system is too large for waste to come from outside.
The regional funds were budgeted. It was considered a village composition: Ecomondo says it is not too small. Small yes, but you do not do business. It is exactly what should be the role of municipalities.
