Work in process

The machines put in operation in April 2015 are fully used in forest and pasture cleaning around Odorheiu Secuiesc. Beside the Homorod-valley, our colleagues are working around Zetea village, processing green waste from more than one hundred hectares. As a social enterprise, the LIA hired mostly socially disadvantaged persons, who participated at the trainings held by the experts of the Norges Vel.

The biomass furnace made by the Erpék Ltd. has been put on end of October and is heating a 800-sqm-surface of LIA’s workshops.  With the heating season also the sale of biomass started up, so our plan is to sell 1700 m3 of it by the end of this year.

Three-step-training in October

The three-step-training held by the experts of the Norwegian Norges Vel Organization has finished on the 22-23rd of October. During the three meetings foresters, commoners, forest- and pasture owners, as well as environmental protectionists have gained a theoretical and practical insight into the details of a sustainable green waste management. Beside the operation of the machines and the production process of the high quality biomass originating from the forest and pasture cleaning, the participants learned about the cooperating possibilities of this field.

Local specialists have also participated at the training, this way it ended with a meaningful professional experience exchange.
