According to administrators in the Italian Roccasecca town, they’ll explore the possibilities of creating a hemp plastics vending chain while cleaning domestic land through the crop’s remediation possibilities.
Marco Delle Cese, chairman of Cosilam, Consortium for Industrial Development of Southern Lazio and Giussepe Sacco the Roccasecca Mayor announced the measure recently. A memorandum of comprehension was signed with the ENEA, National Agency For Sustainable Energy and Technologies and Unicas who’ll be the project’s scientific partners.
Delle Cese said that the method of acquiring plastic will be studied beginning from hemp molecules and not from the synthesis procedure that begins from petroleum derivatives. He said the dream is to acquire biodegradable green plastic that doesn’t pollute.
The program focuses on developing a vending chain that resembles the one organized among participants for Roccasecca’s local tobacco sector and Lazio region’s multiple local communities. Administrations envision a local sector that begins with seedlings, guarantees the farmers’ payment and makes sure raw materials are available to processors.
Delle Cesse also said that The program’s scientific partners have already highlighted packaging as a major business opportunity. The measure currently seeks industrial partners who’ll provide polymer expertise, green energy and management. He added that the territory requires folks who can take hemp and transform it.
He also pointed out that the formation of a Lazio industrial consortium can play a critical role in establishing a hemp sector for the territory.
Mayor Giussepe said the measure will clean up the fields, put it back in business and create employment opportunities. The program is the first move to re-acquire land within Roccaseca’s industrial region through plants that can absorb metals that have polluted the domestic soil for ages. Giuseppe’s administration has concentrated on environmental matters.
Umbria Officials are also taking a closer look at the possibility of hemp fibre-based biopolymers and bioplastics.
