A family-owned business created multiple revenue streams by creating a new product from an olive stone by-product, demonstrating sustainable economic development and environmental protection.
Projects & Practice
The project has enabled the living-lab, Josenea which is focused on organic farming, to collect bio-waste from neighbours and transform it into compost to fertilise their crops, with environmental, economic and social benefits.
A biofuel production and packaging line was established in an olive growing region of Greece. The waste residues are used to produce biofuel (PELLET) offering considerable economic and environmental benefits.
Thanks to a LEADER supported investment, a shoe repair and manufacturing enterprise constructed its own production facility benefiting from savings on rent and easier access to the market.
EAFRD funding enabled setting up a sawn timber production company in northeast Greece that employs modern equipment and contributes to the local economy by using local resources.
EAFRD funding enabled the creation of an integrated sports and adventure centre where visitors can enjoy nature and benefit from its environmental education services.
