Health: Molecular farming for plant-based veterinary vaccines

Using "molecular farming" technologies based on plants to manufacture the latest generation of veterinary vaccines with cheaper and faster procedures. This is the objective of the international project AVIAMED (Prevention and control of avian viral diseases of the Mediterranean area with vaccines produced in plants), coordinated by ENEA and funded by the European research program ERANET Arimnet2 and by the Ministry of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies. The 'green' vaccines produced in plants will allow to fight avian diseases widespread in countries bordering the Mediterranean basin.

Coronavirus: ENEA patents eco-friendly barriers for the beach

From research comes a green solution to ensure safe distancing at the beach in the COVID-19 post-emergency phase. The idea is to use Posidonia oceanica, a marine plant present in large quantities on the Mediterranean shores, to create ecological safety barriers. The innovative solution - developed by ENEA in collaboration with the company Ecofibra - consists of dividing panels padded with dried Posidonia to separate umbrellas and create access paths to water, in line with current health regulations.
