Local Capacities
There was already service companies/persons with capacities to start new biomass chains on prunings/plantation removal
Pruning Management
The management of the pruning/plantation removal is recognised to be expensive. Farmers found pruning for energy a good idea
Support
The subject of argarian residues for energy was subject of new supporting measures
Logistics Chain
There were pre-existent collaborations established between farmers sector and biomass cosumers/traders
The introduction of new technologies (machine, handling systems, logistic chain) supported the implementation of new chains
Private investment for entepreneurs was incentivised



Short summary of the initiative (<100 words)
Xavier Muller ows hiw own vineyard in Alsace and he produces with hiw truck 2 tons of pruning pellets for his own consumption. For the moment, he just produces the quantity needed and does not want to develop any market but can think about it next years. The granulator was built by H energy, a new company for sustainable development. Mr. Muller participates in the project as partner. He has performed several test with its pruning. Mr Muller owns his baler and share the granulator with other people from H energy company. The machinery is utilized under a leasing contract, as other local farmers do.
