Santa Caterina Valfurva is the eco-friendly resort!
Since 2008, Santa Caterina Valfurva is heated thanks to a biomass thermal power.
The heat is produced by:
- Material from cleaning and maintenance of forests (branches, leaves, barks);
- Leftovers of sawmills' working (sawdust and scraps);
- Urban pruning;
- Residues from mowing-time;
This innovative heating system is designed to protect the environment by reducing emissions of fumes into the atmosphere and to use renewable energy sources.
