The Farmacie Comunali of the city of Genoa, in partnership with the Associazione Gigi Ghirotti, organise the collection of unused pharmaceuticals to provide for the needs of those who would otherwise struggle to afford them. Through this project, Genoa's eight Farmacie Comunali distribute these "reused" pharmaceutical products. Pharmacies become collection points where local citizens can drop off pharmaceuticals they will not use.

The project is located in the territory of Thau. This is an experimental project, carried out by the CPIE * Bassin de Thau with the involvement of different partners, including CIRAD* for scientific coordination. This project aims to develop a new fishing field, on the one hand, by experimenting with mule farming, an omnivorous local species less demanding in terms of protein intake and yet providing all the benefits required for human consumption, and on the other hand by testing the incorporation of bread from the catering industry into fish pellets.
These two aspects aim to produce a local fish with all the nutritional qualities at a lower cost and to reduce the food waste in the collective catering and the baker sector. The project aims to create an innovative and sustainable territorialized food system. The project is accompanied by education and awareness raising among actors and the public to combat food waste and responsible food behavior.

Thanks to its liquid heat recovery system, Stimergy both reduces energy waste of servers and energy needs of water heating systems while cutting the operational costs linked to the cooling of server rooms.
