Carbon market can play a key role for farmers and it is an important issue for the daily debate to achieve climate targets. There is no doubt that agriculture represents a particular scenario because it produces emissions (like all productive sectors) but it is also actively involved in order to absorb carbon and decrease the CO2 capacity in the atmosphere, also offering a significant contribution against climate change by improving soil quality and fertility. In this context, anaerobic digestion can be one of the technological solutions that have the potential to reduce emissions. The purpose of the conference is to offer an in-depth look at the topic of the carbon market and answer questions and requests from the sector, proposing virtuous behaviour and best practices.
