Energy Saving & Efficiency
With the largest photovoltaic rooftop in Italy, and one of the largest in Europe, CAAB and CAAB Advisory are leading producers of renewable energy, in the form of solar energy. CAAB has an annual production of 11 MW/year, with plans to increase to 20 MW/year in the future.
The circular economy is a closed-loop system in which resources are retained in the loop, enabling them to become sustainable, as waste is repurposed to create new value. Circular economy in agri-food sectors involves agricultural waste being turned into bio-products such as fertilizers, energy and other re-useable materials. CAAB operates one of the most modern food waste management systems in the agri-foods sector and has even greater plans for expansion.
With the use of IoT, AI, Big Data, Robotics and other digital tools, CAAB Advisory works in partnership with other companies and start-ups to implement the latest innovations to improve precision in agriculture, efficiency to reduce energy and waste, improve traceability in the supply chain and use data to make better predictions and “smarter” decisions.
