Eni has developed a vertical integration model for the production of vegetable oil, from no food crops on degraded lands (pursuant with ISCC-EU certification scheme) cover crops, and the valorisation of agricultural, agro-industrial and forestry residues, to be used for biofuels production.

According to the model, the agricultural production is mainly entrusted to local farmers, cultivating their own land, while Eni processes the agri feedstock, through the construction of vegetable oil extraction facilities (Agri Hub) or using existing ones, according to the industrial maturity in that context. The model also envisages the collection and valorisation of residues from agro-industries.

The Agri feedstock value chains are certified according to ISCC-EU (International Sustainability and Carbon Certification), one of the main certification schemes recognized by the European Commission.

Eni Agri feedstock initiatives bring significant benefits in the involved territories, in terms of environment, job creation and capacity building and training opportunities. From an environmental point of view, they support the regeneration of degraded agricultural areas (pursuant with ISCC-EU certification scheme), through the introduction of good agricultural practices and inputs (such as seeds and mechanization). The supply chains promoted by Eni involve thousands of small farmers, allow the creation of income and access to the market, promoting socio-economic development in rural areas.
