Lignocellulosic waste treatment plant, located in Spiritu Santu - Olbia (SS)


CIPNES - Gallura has recently acquired (April 2018) from Sarda Compost S.r.l. the lignocellulosic waste treatment plant located in Loc. Spiritu Santu - Olbia (SS).

The plant has the function of transforming "ligneocellulosic" organic waste into compost (green or simple non-composting soil improver) or biomass.


The predominant activity is the production of compost, sold in bulk or bagged, which is a key product for soil amendment on agricultural land and domestic gardens. In addition, CIPNES takes care of the cleaning and mowing of road bumps, tree cutting and garden maintenance on request. These operations also include the transport phases.

The achievement of the future goals set by CIPNES is related to the continuous development of the plant, with the aim of flanking the production and sale of compost with the production and sale of soil for the floricultural and agronomic sector of the territory.

The management of CIPNES pays particular attention to the protection of the environment, the minimization of the impacts produced and the awareness of the various stakeholders.



At the quality composting plants of CIPNES "Gallura, located in Loc. Spiritu Santu - Olbia (SS), it is possible to purchase the following types of quality compost (as regulated by Legislative Decree 75/2010 and subsequent amendments and integrations):

- Mixed Compost Soil Mixer;

- Simple non-composted soil conditioner;

- Green Compounded Soil Soil Conditioner.

Natural organic soil improvers are part of the category "Soil improvers and remedies" which includes "any substance, natural or synthetic, mineral or organic, capable of modifying and improving the chemical, physical, biological and mechanical properties and characteristics of a soil"; they are products used essentially to increase and maintain the organic fertility of the soil. In fact, their nutrient content is relatively low and, as a consequence, they can be used in important doses, such as to significantly affect the soil's organic endowment.

The soil improver enriches soils with organic matter, improves the physical and biological characteristics of the soil and provides nutrients to crops. Here are the possible areas of application:

- Environmental recovery of degraded areas (combating desertification);

- Open field agriculture;

- Landscaping sector;

- Horticultural sector, hobby and professional sector.
