The mill is an environmental building planned to preserve the energetic balance and to maintain thermal stability in winter and summer. It has been built with double thermal walls and automatic ventilation screens.
On the outside a series of pergolas and vegetation screens shelter the building in summer and merge the mill with its surroundings. The south façade has a roofed structure provided with photovoltaic modules; these together with the olive bone used as fuel contribute to the balance between power consumption and generation.
The interior is lined entirely with stainless steel to increase the desired thermos effect and to help with hygiene and cleanness. During the summer of 2007 the cellar maintained a temperature of 23º C, passively and without air conditioning, in Córdoba!
