Accelerate the development of sectors in agro-ecological transition
At the end of May 2020, Axereal announced that it has already commercialised low-GHG seeds on Oleomarket (OleoZE solution), and thus became the leading French seed collector in terms of volume for the production of high-GHG reduction biodiesel and the first certified collecting organisation in real greenhouse gas values.
An average bonus of €20 per tonne in the 2019 harvest
The seeds collected on Oleomarket show GHG emission reductions of over 70% and sometimes well over 100%. This year, the average bonus for Axereal farmers was around €20 per tonne of rapeseed, depending on the market and the level of greenhouse gas reduction obtained by the farmers. “The cooperative’s support to producers has been invaluable in gaining access to this new market. We use our digital tools to collect the data, for traceability and certification purposes in order to obtain the bonus”, explains Jérôme Bos. A promising sector, which reinforces the CultivUp global approach to sustainable agriculture of the Axereal group, and which finds its place in the carbon strategy on which the cooperative is currently advancing.
For Christophe Beaunoir, “Axereal is paving the way for the role that collecting organisations should take in supporting and promoting sustainable agricultural practices. OleoZE is a tool at their disposal to help them”.
