TORINO GREEN AIRPORT

18,0°C | 64,4°F

Circular Economy

Turin Airport has adopted an 'impoverishment regime' (Poor grass regime) to make the lawn of the airport grounds poorly attractive for birds and fauna and thus minimize the risk of wildlife strikes and reduce the total working hours of agricultural tractors in order to contain environmental pollution.

Starting in autumn 2021, 15 hectares of green areas will be dedicated to the cultivation of chamomile which promotes biodiversity (beefriendly) and does not attract birdlife. The rest of the organic material collected will be destined for the production of biogas at a specialized company.

The possibility of exploiting the biogas produced at the service of airport infrastructures is being evaluated.
