Coal minning at Cap Bon

In rural areas of Tunisia, the average wood consumption per household and per year is between 1.8 and 5.9 tones.

In this work, we propose to...

The selection of Eucalyptus with a melliferous vacation in humid and arid environments

Boxes to collect honey (Sejnene-Bizerte) & Eu.camaldulensis (Rimel-Bizerte)

This work aims to promote beekeeping activity in rural areas where eucalyptus can play a leading role as nectar species. This objective necessarily involves the identification of eucalyptus species of melliferous interest and the selection of the most successful species in terms of abundance of flowering, its duration, and its spreading throughout the year.
