Among these, particularly important for the Sicilian energy industry taking the so-called "agro-energy", the expression of multifunctional agriculture linked not only to the productive character issues, but also environmental and energy. It is oil crops, alcohol and biomass the use of which may not only reduce energy costs but provide income to-gricoltori, while allowing repopulation of rural areas and a reduction of desertification which affects-no large areas of Sicily. The energeti of-that compared to fossil fuels crops would also lower emissions of greenhouse gases by, to reduce phe-phenomena of air pollution, strongly needs required in urban environments.
