The knowledge generated in research and innovation projects is hard to access, thus it is vital to create networks for knowledge transfer between production and research.
Projects & Practice
Developing an innovative model of local-level bio-waste.
Punkalaidun municipality conducted a feasibility study for setting up a biogas plant producing energy from manure, which resulted in an investment decision.
A dairy farm in Wallonia invested in renewable energy production from manure and produced milk using a more environmental friendly process.
The Finnish Natural Resources Institute used EAFRD funding to develop the production of mushrooms for food and medicine to give forest owners an alternative income source.
Setting up a briquette production plant that uses wood dust and energetic willow, shows how a region's natural resources can be used for energy production in an environmentally friendly way.
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.
