New machinery for harvesting and pre-treating wood prunings

The project develops new machinery for harvesting and on-site pre-treatment of the prunings which fills a technology gap: a modular prototype (to be mounted on regular agricultural tractors) adaptable to different crop layouts able to pick-up the branches, chip them and store them into a trailer or to wrap them; and a baler capable to produce large bales, similar to hay or straw bales. Marketed machinery is able to reduce costs and pre-treat the biomass so that the product is compatible with standard transport means
