Transfer meets Atades to discuss uptake biofilm
On October 11, Sven Kallen of Transfer, visited Félix Arrizabalaga, director of the Atades Association in Zaragoza.
Atades has more than 60 years of experience in helping and training mentally handicapped people from the Aragon region and where possible find them jobs. One of Atades’ projects is the brand “Gardeniers” where farms are ecologically certified and products are sold either fresh or processed for added value. On several farms around Zaragaza and also in the north of the region Atades produces horticultural products with conventional film.
The idea is to trial the biodegradable ones in order to become even more sustainable in their operations. Details of the trials next year will be discussed with the farm managers in the coming months. Project partner is looking forward for replication efforts after the project comes to its end.
