    Hope to seeing work soon. Usually this kind of project takes long for initiation due to waiting for inaugration ceremony.

    Don’t treat that biomass as just junk! This is an excessively renewable resource. There are so many ways to use it. It can be made into fuel in several ways, with fertilizer or charcoal as a byproduct. It can be made into cloth or leather. It can be used as feed for some livestock. Look around the web and see what fits your local economy and culture best. Put it to use!
