A newly planted forest consisting of almost 15,000 trees, shrubs, officinal essences and 3 hectares of poplar grove with about 2000 trees and the capacity to fix up to 200,000 kilos of carbon dioxide per year.

This is the environmental requalification project conceived by the milling company Agugiaro&Figna Molini adjacent to the Collecchio plant that will see the light and give breath to the territory by November 2021.
