Biorefinery Glas is a demonstration of small-scale biorefinery in Ireland, supporting development of new business models and farmer diversification into the circular bioeconomy.
Projects & Practice
The project took nature-friendly vine cultivation on a family farm a step further to develop zero-waste processing methods that valorise all by-products of grapes in a sustainable and fully circular way. The resulting seeds, oil and flour have proved very popular with customers.
A dairy farm combined three RDP supported operations to increase and modernise milk production and secure one full-time job.
