CA.RE. FOR. Engineering (CFE)

CA.RE. FOR. Engineering (CFE), acronym for CARBON REDUCTION AND FORESTRY, is a professionals association started in 2012, by Marco Ugolini (Forest Engineer) and Luca Pedocchi (PhD Chemistry). Both of them have more than 20 years experience in their own operational fields.

CFE has a specialized and recognized background on biofuels supply chain sustainability and life cycle inventories and assessment of Agricultural and Forestry Systems. CFE has also proved abilities to design and introduce sustainability oriented values in the industrial processes related to agro-energy and agro-food systems.

CFE is one of the major specialized national players in consultancy on environmental sustainability certifications, according to the Dir. 2009/28 / EC modified by Dir EU 2015/1513, and life cycle assessment of the biomass and intermediate products in the production chain of biofuels, with particular reference to biodiesel supply chain.

Since 2012, CFE has supported as consultancy a large number of facilities and plants (about 30% of the Italian market) involved in the supply chain of the biodiesel production. 

Within this area, CFE has been at the forefront of biodiesel production chain sustainability in Italy, accompanying in 2012 the first Italian Company to obtain the certification for the environmental sustainability of the whole supply chain from the agricultural stages of the biomass cultivation to the biodiesel production, within the 2BSvs scheme.
