GOTECFOR is an EIP-AGRI operational group that contributes to the bioeconomy by seeking to optimise the value chain of forest biomass, as a fuel for heating.
Projects & Practice
Setting up collaborative water system measures and a governance approach to increase self-sufficiency of freshwater availability for agriculture.
An EIP-AGRI Operational Group project on the use of insects for adding value to organic residues from agriculture.
Using biomass residues to produce a fertiliser, which is then used to grow trees, and will, over time, improve soil quality, has led to significant financial savings for nature conservation organisations and tree nurseries.
A small family forestry business used RDP support to acquire new machinery that would enable it to respond to the increasing demand for forest services.
A dairy farm combined three RDP supported operations to increase and modernise milk production and secure one full-time job.
Acquisition of a wood chipper that produces chips for cogeneration more efficiently, thus reducing the cost of tools and consumables per unit of finished product.
