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
Setting up a hybrid irrigation system using solar energy to reduce energy costs and carbon dioxide emissions.
Expanding a water reservoir and installing a solar farm to reduce the energy costs of irrigation.
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 company managing publicly-owned forests purchased new machinery to turn forest residues and logging waste into valuable biomass fuel.
This multi-million Euro project helped harness geothermal energy to produce heat and power by drilling wells into reservoirs of hot water that are found deep underneath the earth’s surface.
A regional cooperative chain for biomass was established to respond to the increasing demand for woodchip.
RDP support financed the replacement of outdated irrigation infrastructure towards improved water use efficiency, increased crop yields and reduced energy costs.
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.
