CAP cooperation project pioneers the potential for re-using agricultural plastic waste in Spain.
Projects & Practice
Short supply chain success stories catalysed by COVID-19 crises in Spanish islands.
An EIP Operational Group was set up to strengthen the food chain and create short distribution channels for small and medium farms in the Madrid region.
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.
On-farm processing can add value to the product and can also make farming a more attractive choice for young farmers - as demonstrated by a berry farm in Finland.
Punkalaidun municipality conducted a feasibility study for setting up a biogas plant producing energy from manure, which resulted in an investment decision.
