Arab Startup Competition Eighth Edition 2015: Social Entrepreneurship Track - Semi-finalist

Description

Jereed uses secondary products of palm trees, namely, palm midribs, to produce wood-substitute boards, marketable furniture items parquet and decorative accessories. It aims to rediscover the many uses of palm trees’ secondary products as renewable resources that have the capacity to satisfy local, national, and international demands on green products. Jereed creates a model for dealing with agricultural residues in an innovative way; it uses machines that are especially designed for production in villages, in regular households requiring no additional utilities or special investments. This innovation takes advantage of available resources and satisfies local and international needs of wood using wood-substitutes, made from agricultural residues, while creating income sources for the poor households of the village, enabling women and men to be productive in their homes, and reducing the negative impact on the environment from burning the palm midribs, or poor maintenance of the palm trees.
