GEOTHERMAL ENERGY & FLORICULTURE: SUSTAINABLE ENERGY FOR THE CULTIVATION OF TROPICAL PLANTS

FLORAMIATA has 183,000 sq. m of iron-glass and iron-polycarbonate greenhouses and 55,000 sq. m of single and multiple tunnels with geothermal heating.
The production plants aim at a cultivation that has the lowest environmental impact possible. The heating is connected to mobile thermal shields that allow shading and energy saving, reducing heat dissipation of 30% through irradiation. The sprinkling irrigation systems are used to control the correct levels of humidity; the irrigation systems are mainly drip system and capillary carpet that allow maximum water saving

FLORAMIATA, LOW ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT PRODUCTION

We prevent the emission of 30,491 tons of carbon dioxide every year!

Geothermal energy supplies the company about 114 million kWh every year. If said heat were to be produced using diesel this would require more than 9,570 tons of this fuel, a quantity equal to 9.3% of the annual need of the province of Siena,

We remove 600 tons of CO2

The plants we produce, through their photosynthetic processes, remove carbon dioxide fixing the CO2 present in the environment. It has been calculated that the 3 million ornamental plants produced annually retain about 600 tons of carbon dioxide in their tissues, equal to the quantity removed every year by 55 hectares of chestnut grove!
