After a virtual version in 2020, the Green Economy 2021 Festival is back in attendance from Monday 5 to Sunday 11 July in Parma.
This initiative is, as every year, promoted by the Symbola Foundation and Italypost, in collaboration with the weekly Buone Notizie del Corriere della Sera and Egea.
Buzzi Unicem, selected for the second time to participate in the initiative, has positively joined the project, sharing its values and considering it an opportunity for constructive discussion with stakeholders and other participating companies.
The Vernasca plant of Buzzi Unicem will be involved in the Festival - on Wednesday 7th - as the “Sustainability Factory”, home to thirty recent graduates and post-graduate masters from all over Italy.
Among the peculiarities of the plant, the European “Cleanker” Project. The calcium looping technique for the capture and storage of CO2, applied for the first time to the production of cement, is tested here through a pilot plant. With this technology it is estimated that it is possible to produce cement by capturing over 90% of the carbon dioxide associated with the production cycle.
The plant also uses CSS-C (Secondary Solid Fuel - end of waste), as an alternative to fossil fuels in its production process, thus adopting an environmentally and economically advantageous solution.
A second moment of Buzzi Unicem's active participation in the Festival will be at the meeting "Business strategies for sustainability", on Friday 9 July 2021 from 4.30 to 5.45 pm. A conference moderated by Diana Cavalcoli journalist for Corriere della Sera, with the participation of important representatives of excellent companies committed to innovation.
