Planning of industrial areas ecologically equipped (APEA)

Ambiter was among the first to address the issue of Ecologically Equipped Productive Areas (APEA), carrying out since 2007 studies and projects carried out on behalf of public and private clients, providing assistance specialist for the whole process of implementation and qualification of production areas as APEA in the provinces of Parma, Piacenza, Reggio Emilia and Ferrara.

The workgroup has developed a model of production area which includes the assumption of specific technical and organizational data, with the aim of eco-sustainability and the application of best available techniques, placing itself at the forefront at the regional and the national technical and management solutions adopted, in line with the reference model proposed by national and international bodies .
The adopted model proposed organizational forms appropriate to facilitate, both economically and technically, individual firms in the achievement of environmental objectives, in the same management and the establishment of relations of privileged dialogue with the authorities and local communities. In this context Ambiter has developed monitoring plans and environmental data management and public tables for comparison.
The Company has prepared, on behalf of public and private clients, and edited the technical documentation and the formal aspects related to the administrative procedure negotiated between the Emilia-Romagna Region and the provinces, with the aim to promote and support investment programs intended for specialized areas for production areas with the objective of creating infrastructure, systems, services , suitable to be identified as environmentally equipped areas .

Ambiter collaborates with universities, institutes and research on the topic of the APEA, participating with its technical working groups and in-depth workshops. In particular, deserves special mention in the context of the teaching training course "Methodologies and Tools for Sustainable Management of Production Areas" at the University Ca' Foscari of Venice, participation in the project LIFE- SIAM (Sustainable Industrial Area Model) conducted by ENEA and participation in the NETWORK Descartes promoted by the Emilia Romagna, Lazio,Liguria, Lombardy, Sardinia and Tuscany to develop sustainable approaches to land management.
