Community
Permanent crop plantations are quite extended. The use of the agrarian residues for biomass was regarded by community as quite beneficial
Local Capacities
There was already service companies/persons with capacities to start new biomass chains on prunings/plantation removal
Pruning Management
There were already experiences in mobilisation/treatment of prunings/plantation removal (pilot experience etc.)

Short summary of the initiative (<100 words)
The cooperative Nuestro Padre Jesus is an olive oil mill that was founded in 1954. Today, is made of 380 members that deliver their olives to the cooperative from the municipal terms of Jabalquinto, Bailen and Linares, all of them located in Jaen. In 2011 they built a pellet manufacturing plant. The pellet is made from shredding, milling and pressing of the olive pruning which its 380 associated farmers deliver to the cooperative from 6,500 hectares of olive trees which manages the cooperative. It is a plant with a maximum output of 9,500 tons per year of finished product. The pellet produced has a calorific power of 4.4 kW and less than 2% of ash.
