Al Shouf Cedar Association (ACS) is requesting SEAL to fund the purchase of 3 shredder machines to chop the residues of pruning to lower the risk of fire in forests. This in turn would strengthen the usage of natural materials of organic residues mixing them with olive pits to be used as eco-briquette for healthy heating and also to make organic composts for agricultural usage. ACS is cooperating with local communities and municipalities of 22 villages.
It is worth mentioning that the machines were manufactured in Lebanon using high-technologies under the supervision of Lebanese expert engineers. These machines compete with European and international brands in terms of qualifications and specifications.
