In 2008, Banfi implemented an innovative system for the washing of agricultural machinery.
Defined in collaboration with the Department of Agronomy and Agro-Ecosystem Management of the University of Pisa, the project entirely eliminates the dispersion into the environment of oily residues and residues from agricultural treatments which remain in the external washing waters.
For the detoxification and the biodegradation of these residues, the washing waters pass through a biological bed, which is just a thick “mattress” of different plant materials.
The project and its results were presented to the industry and the press at Castello Banfi in 2010.
Bio-Bed: a biological bed.. to make the environment sleep tight!
