•Territorial recovery 
•Forestation characterized by rapid growth
•High-energy value biomass  
•System and Energy consultancy

The integration of the various functions proposed by the company is intended to address the current condition of highly precarious development in the Mediterranean hinterland, particularly  in Liguria.  The introduction of an  innovative, systematic  strategy follows the Company  objective of rendering potential investments on the territory profitable.
