The SAW (Smart Agricultural Waste) project aims to realize the smart management of the natural heritage in Sudoe region through creating a network of professionals working for rural development and by means of complete valorisation of agricultural pruning waste.
The project develops a management network among the different actors of sustainable development of rural areas that allows the implementation of a new pruning waste valorisation system.
The project involves different levels of actors (agricultural companies and technologies, research centres, public administration and others) in order to collaborate in the creation of regional strategies in a transversal approach that promotes the conservation, protection, support and development of the natural and cultural values of agri-historical heritage identical to the Sudoe region.
The origin of the initiative among others are LIFE ECOCITRIC, other LIFE projects, IMIDA, etc. with several pilots in the past ensuring and supporting the feasibility of the present project.
The valorisation of pruning waste through innovative technologies, contributes to the creation of new sustainable products. Introducing those high added valued products to the market urges the regional agriculture moving towards a circular and low carbon economy that transforms waste into sustainable products.
