1 WP II Technical Meeting Cervia (Ravenna), Javni razpis št. 02/20090 /2009:: - Ekolosko trajnostno vrednotenje solin med Italijo in Slovenijo Bando pubblico n. 02/2009: - Valorizzazione ecosostenibile delle saline tra Italia e Slovenia WP 2.1 Environmental Analysis of Cervia Salt Pan Astrid Franceschetti Environmental Expert PP1

2 Site framework Location of the salt pan Area: 827 hectares m from the Adriatic Sea Salt Pans surfcace: m2 Ref. 2/ Ekolosko trajnostno vrednotenje solin med Italijo in Slovenijo Ref. 02/2009: - Valorizzazione ecosostenibile delle saline tra Italia e Slovenia

3 Site framework Site and organization The area is a State Nature Reserve The organizations that cooperate to manage the salt pan are: Cervia Municipality; Company Parco della Salina di Cervia ; Cooperative Company Atlantide ; Parks and Biodiversity Managemnet Body - Delta del Po; National Forest Service.

5 Site framework Review of Historical, Cultural and Natural Heritage (2) Natural heritage The saline ecosystem The flora The fauna The Natura 2000 Habitats Ref. 2/ Ekolosko trajnostno vrednotenje solin med Italijo in Slovenijo Ref. 02/2009: - Valorizzazione ecosostenibile delle saline tra Italia e Slovenia

6 Site framework Activities inside the Salt Pan (1) Salt Production: industrial and traditional Industrial production: Max harvest: ton 2010: ton 2009: ton Traditional production: ton/year Ref. 2/ Ekolosko trajnostno vrednotenje solin med Italijo in Slovenijo Ref. 02/2009: - Valorizzazione ecosostenibile delle saline tra Italia e Slovenia

7 Site framework Activities inside the Salt Pan (2) Tourism activities: all the guided tours Thematic tours: Nature Productive Historical Ref. 2/ Ekolosko trajnostno vrednotenje solin med Italijo in Slovenijo Ref. 02/2009: - Valorizzazione ecosostenibile delle saline tra Italia e Slovenia

8 Environmental Analysis Main Environmental Aspects of Salt production (1) Energy consumptions Electrical energy for the functioning of the pumps (12) and for the packaging plant average yearly consumptions = kw (15-20% for the packaging plant). No purchase of green (from renewable resources) electricity No production of electricity from renewable resources Diesel fuel consumption for train and equipment/machinery depending on the production 2009: (600 mt of harvest) lt 2011: (1.000 mt of harvest) lt Regular maintenance of the machinery, but old ones (low efficiency) Ref. 2/ Ekolosko trajnostno vrednotenje solin med Italijo in Slovenijo Ref. 02/2009: - Valorizzazione ecosostenibile delle saline tra Italia e Slovenia

9 Environmental Analysis Main Environmental Aspects of Salt production (2) Test on waters and on Product No test on entering sea waters Regular yearly test on salt samples: no traces of pollutant substances have ever found in the samples Packaging The salt is packed in plastic (PE) films, in different sizes according to the target of consumer: 300g, 1 kg, 5 kg, 25 kg No ecological or recycled materials are used for packaging Ref. 2/ Ekolosko trajnostno vrednotenje solin med Italijo in Slovenijo Ref. 02/2009: - Valorizzazione ecosostenibile delle saline tra Italia e Slovenia

10 Environmental Analysis Main Environmental Aspects of Tourism activities (1) Impacts of biological life cycles All the paths of the guided tours have been subject to environmental assessment according to protection laws, so they have been studied to have the lowest impact on avifauna and in general on the ecosystem No visits without guides are allowed To visit other parts of the salina a permission/authorization of the National Forest Service is needed Mobility Only low impact means of transportation are used inside the salt pan for the tours: walking, bikes, electric boats To arrive at the Visit Centre most of the tourists use collective means The visit is quite near to the train station and it is connected to downtown with a subway for pedestrians and bikes, and it is possible to arrive by boat Ref. 2/ Ekolosko trajnostno vrednotenje solin med Italijo in Slovenijo Ref. 02/2009: - Valorizzazione ecosostenibile delle saline tra Italia e Slovenia

11 Environmental Analysis Main Environmental Aspects of Tourism activities (2) Visit center Promotional material is printed both with recycled paper and white paper The corner shop sells, among the others, some items (gadgets) with ecological characteristics The snack bar sells, among the others, some local products Inside the Center there is the separated collection of waste Ref. 2/ Ekolosko trajnostno vrednotenje solin med Italijo in Slovenijo Ref. 02/2009: - Valorizzazione ecosostenibile delle saline tra Italia e Slovenia

12 Environmental Analysis Main management area procedures to improve natural resources conservation The Plan of Cervia Station gives a series of directives aimed at the saline nature conservation, such as: - creation of new sites for the nesting of Caradriformi - strict control of water levels during reproductive periods - fit the variations of waters levels for salt production with the fauna protection needs - creation of buffer zones within 500 mt to the salt pans with hunting silence... Ref. 2/ Ekolosko trajnostno vrednotenje solin med Italijo in Slovenijo Ref. 02/2009: - Valorizzazione ecosostenibile delle saline tra Italia e Slovenia

13 Environmental Analysis Considerations/Suggestions about environmental aspects: - Detailed monitoring energy consumptions - Verify the possibility of installing energy production plants from renewable sources (for self-consume or for educational purposes) - Buy green electric energy - Conduct tests on entering sea waters - Verify the possibility of using recycled plastic/materials for packaging - Establish a maximum number of visitors per day, during avifauna reproductive periods - Promote the use of public transport or low impact means of transportation to arrive at the visit center - Increase green procurement for the Visit center, for the Corner shop, and for the Snack bar Ref. 2/ Ekolosko trajnostno vrednotenje solin med Italijo in Slovenijo Ref. 02/2009: - Valorizzazione ecosostenibile delle saline tra Italia e Slovenia
