The project stems from the specific need to make housing and residential complexes energetically autonomous, limiting dependence on oil for the supply of domestic energy. The actions planned and implemented aim at the total reuse of domestic and human waste and scraps. Promoters of the initiative are three partners of the Ge.Di. Srl, Altanet srl, Polytechnic of Bari who set up the GAP network promoting the innovative initiative.
In particular, the following took part: Graziantonio Pallotta (owner of the Ge.Di. Srl Group), Francesca Tirelli (Ge.Di. Srl Group), Vitantonio Bevilacqua (professor of Bari Polytechnic), Pierluigi Montanaro (Altanet Team), Giuseppe Paradiso (Ge.Di. .Di. Srl).
The focal theme is the eco-sustainability of housing, tourism, residential and care systems. That is the medium-large communities that this project, is a candidate to become Passive from an energy point of view. An example is the “Transition Towns”, or communities of 1000 people who, through the intelligent use of waste, solar energy and water management, achieve very high percentages of eco-sustainability.
