Come along to a family owned
- planing factory producing pellets and logs
The evening tour to Fågelfors was one of the most appreciated tours at World Bioenergy 2012, and therefore we run the tour again this year. Fågelfors is located about 1,5 hours drive southeast of Jönköping. The dry shavings from the planing factory are used for production of wood pellets and logs in a relatively new installation. The logs are large briquettes that can be used in stoves and ovens. An evening dinner is included in the tour with no extra charge.

Fossil free farming – is that really possible?
Why should we farmers use fossil fuels, when we can grow our own oil plants to produce biodiesel? Three farmer families asked that question a few years ago. They were already engaged in marketing of biodiesel through their own company Energifabriken.
Today the families have banned all fossil fuels on their farms, for tractors and farm machinery like combines, and also demand that all deliveries to and from the farms are done with trucks using biofuels. Oil for grain dryers, and even petrol for lawn mowers and chainsaws have been substituted with biofuels. The families also try to reduce the use of fertilizers by applying modern technology.
A dinner with Swedish locally produced food is included in the tour.
