  • ENI has launched a project in Tunisia in partnership with Societè National de Distribution des Pétroles AGIL (SNDP) for the semi-industrial production of castor oil plants to produce sustainable biofuels in the Gafsa area.
  • It will be the first case in the world of semi-industrial, non-food cultivation of castor oil plants in a pre-desert area for the generation of sustainable biofuels.
  • Castor oil plants are autochthonous to Tunisia and resistant to the hot and dry environment and create a barrier to growing desertification.
