ENI Livorno oil refinery

For several years, Turf Europe personnel has been entrusted by the DAFE (Department of Agrriculture, Food and Environment) of the University of Pisa, to monitor the green cover within the ENI refinery in Livorno. In such a high-risk environment, vegetation control is of the utmost importance: plants must persist (in order to keep reservoir containment banks compact and to capture fine dusts), but in summer they must be kept low in order to minimize fire risks.

For all these reasons, management is carried out via cycles of mowings and chemical weed control with precise timing and doses that have been perfected over the last 8 years.
