Innovative projects CMD

Research and innovative projects are very important for us for bringing products and new improved services to market, for increasing performances and for making a new connection with the environment.

CMD also takes lots of partnerships with important Universities, Research organizations and institutions.    

Innovare Project

Thanks to INNOVARE project, the biomass can become an important value for combined energy, heat and refrigeration production for decentralized utilities, often point of obsolete power plants and sources of high greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere.


Providing an innovative CHP system for converting biomasses into energy, usable near residual wooden production sites.


For forest residues and agri-foods disposal problems.

A possible application

Local municipalities which must pay for the disposal of biomasses. In this way, they could obtain clean energy from waste to be put into the grid.

Pilot Project

A CHP system has been installed into the Ecological site of Laurino’s city (Salerno, Campania). The project is in collaboration with EPM company, Istituto Motori and Consiglio Nazionale Ricerche (CNR).

Prometeo Project


Make an innovative micro-polygeneration unit characterized by high energy efficiency and low environmental impact, widening the range of usable biomass.


The system from the project has all characteristics to become a model for the renewal of management and for re-use of process byproducts, while attaining a cost reduction related to disposal.

The unit may potentially be powered by residual material from different compartments.

Pilot Project

CMD has done this project already within the disposal site of Mugnano, a municipality near Naples (Naples, Campania) with EPM company, Consiglio Nazionale Ricerche (CNR) and “Parthenope" University of Naples.


Proposing innovative production chains and residual biomass disposal techniques available in urban areas, and prior to pretreatments, through direct use in energy recovery systems for simultaneous and localized production of electric, thermic and cooling energy.

These goals are in compliance with the requirements of European Union development and improvement targets related to:

adding value to available local resources
using of residual and waste materials with the reduction of materials to be treated and disposed in landfill
energy efficiency and saving for no high class energy buildings (especially in SEAP – Sustainable Energy Action Plan)
reducing the impact of human actions on climate, due to greenhouse gas emissions decrease thanks to the biomass use in the transformation process of materials into energy
creating biomass-energy chains by increasing new job offers and improving social and employment pattern of urban areas

Simpa Project


Developing innovative technologies to for increasing of CMD aeronautical piston engines range based on CMD22 and GF56 prototypes.

The project involves the development of systems which help in varying degrees to increase the efficiency of propulsive systems based on aeronautical piston engines and/or making them “smarter”.

Namely, there are 5 goals to achieve:

Supercharge system for aeronautical two stroke diesel engines
Electrification of aeronautical propulsive system for ultralight aircrafts
Predictive diagnosis system for aeronautical piston engines
Safety Critical Electric control system
Spark ignition engine for helicopters

Green Farm Project

It’s an ongoing project that aims the valorisation of agricultural biomass:

ECO20x interfacing of solar panels and lithium storage batteries at the Agraria Federico II department to Castel Volturno
Thermic interfacing with local experimental greenhouses

The biomass used for the plant will become the residual waste of the same farm: a solid example of Circular Economy concept.

iMare Project

The project is committed to propose a hybrid thermal-electric propulsion system with the creation of a demonstrator based on a boat up to 10 meters.  


Developing of a hybrid marine propulsion system that allows boats to navigate zero emission within protected areas, including those of tourist interest or dedicate to biological fish farms.


The presence of an electric motorization and an energy storage system on board that allows to obtain a reduced impact on the surrounding environment and an increase of efficiency propulsion compared to traditional engines.


Low cost, reduced consumptions and low polluting emissions.

Research projects partners

Thanks to the research projects and specific consulting business, CMD cooperates with universities and private research institutions, among the most scientifically advanced.
