Title Description Download
D5.3 Planning of the pilot experiences 

Pilot experiences will be used as baseline for developing work plans and define feasible alternatives for a LCMW supply chain implementation, gaining practical experience on the operation and planning.
In the present document the planning of the pilot experiences implemented in the model regions are described including information regarding the actors involved and its role, description of the feedstock, description of the operations to be carried out, identification of the challenges to overcome, timeline foreseen for each operation, description of the machinery used and expected key results. These data compilation aims to contribute to improve the coordination between local or national authorities and stakeholders, identify the constraints or limitations that could arose during the implementation of a large scale LCMW supply chain, dissemination of results reached, definition of the sectors/actors interested, etc.

D5.4 Final LCMW materials assessment and utilization pathways for model regions 

This document provides an overview of the most suitable conversion technologies for LCMW biomass utilisation including the anaerobic digestion, combustion but also pelletization, torrefaction, hydrothermal carbonisation and pyrolysis. The implementation of the pilot experiences has provided input data allowing to assess the results provided by the biomass assessment, consumers assessment and most suitable pathways previously identified in the project.

D5.5 Follow-up report of the pilot experiences 

Pilot experiences have been performed in each model region of the four project countries (Czech Republic, Germany, Italy and Spain) targeting the most promising LCMW biomass types at the local level. This document is a report on the observed, gathered and analysed information.

D6.2 Online expert interview database policies, finance tools, legal regulations, public support and good governance 

In greenGain’s WP6 “Policies, Finance, Governance and Public acceptance” stakeholders from local, national and European level have been interviewed to receive theoretical and practical information on policies, finance, governance and public acceptance. The report about the interviews performed, the questionnaire and the summaries of 25 interviews can be downloaded here.

D6.3 Implementation plans for legal, finance, governance as well as public participation measures developed to be implemented in model regions 

The deliverable D6.3 presents an individual set of measures for the seven greenGain model regions and the local players to improve the current situation of the use of biomass from landscape conservation and maintenance work (LCMW) in terms of legal regulations, finance tools, public participation and good governance (Task 6.3.1) and a specific plan for the implementation of these measures.

Investigation of a biomass trade and logistic center in the lake Trasimeno region in Italy 

Today the share of renewable energy produced from biomass derived from Landscape Management and Conservation Works is small. This study is one of three within the greenGain project and has been undertaken to investigate measures for mobilizing larger amounts of landscape biomass for energetic purposes. To strengthen the exploitation of landscape biomass the introduction of special Biomass Logistic & Trade Centres (BTLCs) is studied. A BTLC could provide various basic services such as the upgrading of the out-of-specification material to a usable fuel, quality control, product certification, packing and shipping to customer.
