ProPopulus Team

The Marjal Granada Poplar Producers Association celebrates a significant milestone by incorporating one hundred members and over 1,400 hectares of cultivation. This association, born within the context of the European project LIFE Wood for the Future, is at the forefront of forest sustainability and innovation in the sector.

Driven by the University of Granada and supported by various entities, this project has paved the way for poplar producers to venture into new horizons.

An opportunity in the carbon credit market

Among its most recent achievements is the preparation to enter the carbon credit market, an initiative that could revolutionize the business model of poplar producers in the region.

Thanks to collaboration with researchers from the University of Granada, producers are conducting precise measurements of CO2 capture by poplars. This information will allow them to market carbon credits in the voluntary emissions market, generating additional income and promoting climate change mitigation.

The sale of certified wood, a milestone

This year marks a significant milestone for the associated producers, as the sale of the first batches of certified wood destined to manufacture products for sustainable construction is expected.

This certification, obtained through joint effort and commitment to responsible forest practices, opens up new opportunities in the market and positions the Marjal Chopo de Granada Producers Association as a reference in the industry.

The revitalization of poplar cultivation in the province of Granada is another highlight of the work of the Marjal Chopo de Granada Producers Association, which is leading this revival, attracting owners of various plots and crops. This momentum benefits the forestry industry and contributes to economic diversification and sustainable rural development.

A step forward towards sustainability

Commitment to sustainability and the search for more efficient practices in forest management are the driving force behind the efforts of the Marjal Chopo de Granada Producers Association.

This organization, which has experienced significant growth with the addition of new members, aims to promote the production of quality and certified wood, in line with current market demands.

With a solid base of partners and a focus on innovation and sustainability, the Marjal Chopo de Granada Producers Association is in a privileged position to face the future’s challenges. Their participation in the LIFE Wood for the Future project and their preparation to enter the carbon credit market are just the beginning of a journey towards a more prosperous and sustainable forestry sector.
