For years the consortium has been helping to develop green agriculture, attentive to the environment, energy-saving and, therefore, sustainable:
The walnut plants of the Noceto consortium enjoy the Biodiversity Alliance certification, which attests to biodiversity, the biological quality of soils, through the QBS indicator – Biological Quality of Soils. This certification guarantees the soil quality where Walnut plants grow, recognizes the richness and variety of microflora and microfauna not modified by agronomic practices, characteristics that allow the plant to grow in a healthy and luxuriant environment.
Noceto adheres to the integrated defense and production program of the Veneto Region, in application of the specific European and national provisions on the sustainable use of plant protection products.
An oxygen tank
Plants reached the age of five to six years become trees six to seven meters high, also acquiring a high landscape value and conseasing a resource both as an oxygen lung and as a fight against pollution. Our walnuts return an average of 1800 tons of oxygen to the environment every year. A real green lung for the environment.
The 157kw photovoltaic system: allows during the year to contribute to the production of electricity from renewable sources and reducing CO2 emissions by as much as 1200 tons.
The water used for washing nuts is not wasted. A modern purification plant allows water to separate from the residual products recovered during the collection of nuts (grass, twigs, soil) that settle on the bottom. Purified water is returned to the environment while the deposited mud is reused as fertilizer.
