Incorporating locally available biomass into the soil, as a mean to increase its content in organic matter in the long term.
Projects & Practice
A dairy farm in Wallonia invested in renewable energy production from manure and produced milk using a more environmental friendly process.
A regional cooperative chain for biomass was established to respond to the increasing demand for woodchip.
LEADER support was used to exploit the potential of using large quantities of waste wood from landscape management as a renewable energy source.
In an area where cattle breeding is predominent, LEADER funding helped explore the potentials of producing biogas from manure produced in the farms.
