ERA-Net project CREFF


Besides the large potentials and opportunities, the establishment and cultivation of SRC is connected with several constraints and barriers – especially in the economics of the plantations. While most of the research results available have been obtained for medium to good sites and the presumptions of a large field size for the SRC-plantations, this project will focus on unfavourable sites and small field sizes at scattered locations.

The main objective is the successful implementation of cost-efficient and consumer-oriented SRC-value-chains in regions with unfavourable conditions. The research project covers all process steps of the SRC-value chain and is structured in five work packages (WP).

The development of strategies allowing a major cost reduction and a higher efficiency shall be achieved by an innovative approach to initialize intensive and early cooperation between producers and consumers. Inside these co-operations, the SRC-production will concentrate on the requirements of industrial consumers. Based on the known value chain structures all major processes like the production (species-site matching, spacing, rotation), harvest, logistics and conditioning of SRC-products are streamlined.
