Projects & Practice
The construction of two small water basins that minimise the risk of floods and offer a habitat that promotes biodiversity.
A dairy farm in Wallonia invested in renewable energy production from manure and produced milk using a more environmental friendly process.
The construction of a water reservoir helped combat the more frequent extreme weather events such as heavy rainfall and forest fires due to climate change.
A company managing publicly-owned forests purchased new machinery to turn forest residues and logging waste into valuable biomass fuel.
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.
