Circular Economy According to the definition provided by the European Commission, in a circular economy “the value of products and materials is maintained for as long as possible; waste and resource use are minimised, and resources are kept within the economy when a product has reached the end of its life, to be used again and again to create further value.”
Out of our conviction that this is the vision to pursue, we have steered our economic strategy in the direction of creation and development of an innovative model that in which the resources offered by the territory are systemically exploited to generate economic, business, environmental and social value.
We maximise the value of each resource by acting both upstream on the supply chain and downstream on the waste cycle, so as to turn what would otherwise be discarded into a resource. Agro-industrial by-products, clippings and cuttings are generally considered waste material to be disposed of. Yet, our know-how makes them into new tools capable of supporting local development.
For example, the vegetal waste produced by the agri-food sector is rich in secondary compounds that we can recover through specific extraction processes. Similarly, we can extend the life cycle of materials through recovery and recycling processes, thus increasing resource efficiency and reducing waste. We have already given “new life” to artichoke, grape and vine waste, orange pulp and forestry and sawmill by-products.
CircularityBy basing our approach on an integrated production chain and circular production processes, we develop projects that are integrated with activities already existing in the local community, and thus create synergies that give rise to new opportunities for profit, economic value, business, and protection and development of the environment and social fabric.
