Eco-Innovation Bid

Leaf Log logoLeaf Log is set to be produced in high volume to supply to the ever-demanding biomass market from September 2013. Working in partnership
with LipiTec GmbH in Germany, Solas Consultants are working on a 2m euros project including the application for support from the Eco-Innovation grant
fund. The partnership will make the product 100% carbon neutral and suitable for use in smokeless zones for homes and industry. Attending a workshop in Daresbury last week, Solas and 18 other attendees learnt how to
apply for the grant, which has a deadline of 6th September 2012.

Trip to Fulda


, ,

Image of FuldaI’ve just returned from a business trip to Fulda, Germany. The flight was good and the airport at Frankfurt is fantastic, very impressive.

The train journey from the airport to Fulda is about 1 hour. Fulda is tranquil and very green with lots of hills. It’s an old Saxon village and they have replicated some of the Saxon houses which are beautiful. Fulda is perfect for a quiet relaxing holiday!

However, I was locked in an office in an all day business meeting with Dr Dieter Tischendorf who owns Biokema and Jacky Tillieux. After the discussions I had a tour of the production plant – they are the largest producers of 100% eco-friendly wax and will soon be producing the Leaf Log.

I looking forward to visiting Fulda again.
