The idea of the project develops from the relationship between sustainable agricultural techniques, which have direct impact on climate change mitigation, and the evaluation of the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), in order to propose a systemic vision of the production processes and of products through a quantitative assessment of the Carbon Footprint (CF) associated with the production of extra virgin olive oil


Evaluation of carbon sequestration (sink) realized by the olive groves and the corresponding carbon credits, - Analysis and monitoring of the olive cultivation efficiency for reducing the effects of climate change, with particular reference to desertification
