The Parma waste-to-energy plant park was designed by studying both the landscape and ecological aspects, which could ensure the adaptation of the planned solutions to the specific pedological, microclimatic and morphological situation of the area, and all those aspects related to the ability of plants to remove pollutants, according to the mitigation objectives set.
The biomass required for sampling was collected according to the procedure established in the protocol for monitoring approved by the Province of Parma. Four different samplings (three during the growing season and one in winter) taken from the tree specimens of the various species present in sampled areas were carried out and replicated over the years.
As far as the sampling data in the years examined show, what has been implemented in Parma is showing itself as a green area capable of affecting both the air pollution mitigation processes in the area and the ecological processes occurring in the surrounding area of the plant.
