Benefiting the environment - in what way? Bob.

Generally speaking, olive farmers burn their debris from the harvest (between late October and early March) at the same time as they prune their trees (harvest time). Some farmers understand that collecting the small stuff is uneconomic (to provide raw material for your briquets). Their scolution is to either leave the debris or (very often) bring in a machine that pounds up and down the olive lines and *macerates* said debris. I believe this latter solution can attract some kind of susidy because it is seems as organic (I've heard that but don't know for sure).
Another thing is that many olive farmers also have goats and sheep to feed - the prunings get loaded on to tractors and taken away.
I am not clear what business you would like to start - ?
