Zöldhulladék-gazdálkodás az ünnepek után

A szeméttárolók mellé kihelyezett  karácsonyfákat idén nem a cekendi szeméttelepre szállítják, hanem Székelyudvarhelyen a Bányai János Műszaki Kollégium használja fel fűtésre a LIA Alapítvány közreműködésével. A város 34 szemétgyűjtő pontjánál naponta gyűjtik össze a kidobott fenyőfákat, ezeket pedig az alapítványunk speciális gépével aprítjuk fel, majd a középiskola kazánjaiba kerülnek.

Inauguration ceremony in Locodeni

The biomass furnace was put into operation in Locodeni and the official handover ceremony took place on the 27th of  November  2015.

The fact that we managed to start a social enterprise based on a timeless topic - environmental protection - is a great joy for our foundation, and we hope to set an example for the surrounding villages.

At the inauguration ceremony, the project manager, Mr. Árpád Orbán welcomed the large public: "Civitas and LIA foundation created from this village a viable model, presenting a wide range of values, where social assistance plays an important role, where young people coming from foster-homes can learn profession and life in order to get a proper job and live on it.
Our objective is to preserve and process medicinal plants and traditional seeds. Our program called Szekler Fruit also enjoys a great success. The implementation of this project, funded by the Government of Norway , is a wonderful achievement for the Foundation. The biomass center, i.e. green waste processing tries to be a model that should work in every Szekler village. It is our wish that these high-performance furnaces serve community purposes: help the population heating their schools, churches, town halls, community houses.

The general director of the LIA Foundation, Mr. Szilágyi Csaba spoke about the technical details of the investment, followed by the technical director, Mr. Lóránt Jakab, who presented the operation of the machine park. The program continued in the community house by presenting a movie to the audience about the realization of this project.

We believe that besides pasture and forest cleaning, production and sales, we can still assume an important role in our region through trainings and educational programs. We want to continue our activity, through which not only professionals would be involved into green waste management and environmental protection, but also the rural population and educational institutions

Biomass furnace’s inauguration day

Within the frame of the Sustainable green waste management project, started in summer 2014, will take place the inauguration of the biomass furnace and plant in Locodeni on the 27th of November at 11 a.m. All interested persons are welcome! At the inauguration Orbán Árpád (project leader), Szilágyi Csaba (managing director) as well as Vajda Lajos (president of Green Energy Cluster) will greet the audience. Following the inauguration all interested persons are welcome to the presentation of „Sustainable green waste management in Harghita county” project taking place in the common house.

The realization of the project has been financed by the Norwegian Government within the frame of Norway Grants 2009-1014 Green industry innovation program in Romania.

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.
