Expanding Mediterranean Energies: Fuelling Regional Growth is the theme of the Offshore Mediterranean Conference & Exhibition (OMC 2019), the main international showcase for the Oil & Gas industry. From 27-29 March, in Ravenna, we have discussed the importance of the Mediterranean Sea as a bridge between Africa and Europe. An opportunity for sustainable development with the aim of exploiting the many gas discoveries and integrating them with renewable sources of energy.
The importance of Clean Sea
The history of Eni is built on continuous innovation across all levels and in every field. It is essential that we find the most effective technologies and the best practices to support our activities
Microalgae as a model of the circular economy
As an energy company, we are interested in advancing our techniques to ensure a sustainable future for the planet. For this reason, we have been working on the biofixation of CO2 by means of microalgae – a promising method for the management and use of carbon dioxide. Eni is investigating bioalgae oil as a possible material to power bio-refineries and the production of third-generation Green Diesel.
Enhancing the value of waste
Sviluppata all’interno della Ricerca Eni e protetta da brevetti, la tecnologia Waste-to-Fuel si inserisce all’interno della filiera dell’economia circolare. Grazie alla riduzione di materie prime nella produzione energetica, riutilizza la Frazione Organica Rifiuti Solidi Urbani (Forsu) per ottenere un biocombustibile avanzato, utilizzabile in contesti marini o valorizzabile nel ciclo di raffinazione.
Energy by wave motion
Developed at the Eni R&D Centre and protected by patents, Waste-to-Fuel technology is a vital link in the broader circular-economy production chain. Aiming to reduce the volume of raw materials used in energy production, this technology reuses the organic fraction of municipal solid waste (OFMSW) to obtain an advanced biofuel that can be used in marine contexts or exploited as part of the refining cycle..
