So called Ecomondo and is the main exhibition dedicated to Green economy and to Circular economy (economy related to recycling materials) in the Mediterranean euro area.
This is an interesting observatory on the development of technologies related to the environment. And the steps we can take to avoid poisoning us.
It turns out that Italy is a leader in Europe industrial recycling: recycling 47 million tons of waste, thus saving energy for 17 million tons of oil.
And we also found a study about European Commission, where better product design and reuse of waste is sufficient, to be able to produce in the next few years: 30% reduction in raw material consumption, half of greenhouse gas emissions, 5% growth of GDP, creating more than 1 million jobs .
Ecomondo also indirectly quipped doubts: that in the province of Frosinone we lost a great opportunity. And wasting money.
The case is organic waste: the rest of our kitchen. We have been forced to take them out of the province for several months because the Saf factory can no longer afford it according to new regulations. The machines must be changed, the cycle must be redesigned.
We spend a lot of money that we will pay in the next bill with taxes on waste. On the contrary, said Ecomondo, we have the opportunity to store garbage and work at home: with small plants in the country, able to work on leftover food produced by several thousand families.
Nothing extraordinary: it works like a digestive system, fermented gas is processed and converted into methane.
Where is the news? In size. Before this type of plant, being comfortable must work tons of waste every day. Which presupposes a large structure.
Today there is a possibility of making a very small one. With the condition that we do not want to do business. But use it for the country's economy or a small group of united nations.
What does this mean? First, it is necessary to build factories and work on the remnants of the entire province, then pump gas to the national energy network, making money. Today there is enough of a factory where 5 or 6 people work to treat the remains of 4 or 5 medium-sized countries, using methane for schools in these cities, for public buildings, for some factories at the most. But it must be willing to buy clean energy produced by City.
The challenge is just that. The size is small: to prevent great speculation from coming, with a system that is too large must take waste from the outside.
Regional funds have been budgeted. It was considered a village composer: Ecomondo said that it was not too small. Yes it's small but you don't do business. Exactly what should be the Municipality mission.
