    The University of Florence and the Province of Lucca, in Tuscany, Italy, are seeking partners interested in a project aimed at reaching and developing eco-sustainable agronomic practices in agricultural production processes.

    Specifically this project promotes the development of eco-sustainable agronomic practices in agricultural production processes related to agricultural tree crops typical of the Mediterranean area: vines, olive trees, orchards and nursery productions.
    In particular, the experimental project is aimed at testing production processes for the production of liquid tannin extracted from wood chips of chestnut and locust pseudoacacia through solubilization in hot water at high pressure; and wood vinegar produced by the condensation of the fumes of the pyrogasification process of wood chips.

    The tannin production process generates wet wood chips and liquid tannin, while the wood vinegar process originates charcoal (or biochair), wood vinegar and singas (mixture of hydrogen, methane, carbon monoxide, etc.) which can be used to power internal combustion engines to produce electricity.
    The two extracts are characterized by active ingredients that stimulate the resistance of plants to pathogens and environmental stress (thermal and water), while the by-products represent excellent opportunities: for energy enhancement in domestic stoves (wood chip and biochair), for use as mulch in the nursery and ornamental sector (wood chips) and also as a soil improver for the agricultural sector (biochair).

    The project therefore aims to structure local production chains of these active ingredients and related by-products, enhancing and diversifying forest production and at the same time reducing the environmental impacts of traditional agricultural production through a strong reduction of chemical inputs.
    Moreover, the supply chain also activates a significant production of energy resources (wood chips, biochar and singas), which take on particular importance in this historical moment.

    The project envisages both the carrying out of tests and evaluation of the effectiveness of organic products, as well as transfer activities to woodland companies, with the setting up of prototype production plants and application protocols for the treatments for the different crop types. The environmental effects of the production conversion and qualification process and the additional benefits generated in terms of product image will therefore be measured, as well as the economic effects on the territories where the supply chains will be launched.

    Dear miss Lazzaroni,

    I represent Local action group “South Istria”, NGO from Croatia (Istria Region). We find your idea about sustainable agronomic solutions very interesting and we would be happy to join the consortium.

    Area of south Istria is rich with olive grows and vine grows and has a large number of potential stake holders and target groups interested in this topic. Tree crops from olive trees and vine trees are mostly treated as waste and purposeless residues. Having in mind the need of switching to green and sustainable agronomic solutions and actions, the use of tree crops represents excellent option to gain additional benefits for healthy biodiversity and sustainable environment.

    Based on everything said, we would be glad to participate on this project.

    Best regards,
    Moira Drandic Pauro

    Dear colleagues,
    I’m contacting you on behalf of GAL Molise:
    We are an Italian public private consortium made of 59 rural municipalities.
    We have experience on Interreg projects also about eco-sustainable processes and practices.
    We are interested to get involved as partner.

    Dear Monica/ all:

    We has just sent you an e-mail.

    Good luck!

    If we talk about the cultivation of agricultural crops, then the first place in the United States is, of course, cannabis, which is mainly used for medical purposes. Various health products are made from cannabis, such as hash which help to quickly and effectively deal with mental disorders and pain.
