BioRES - Sustainable regional supply chains for woody bioenergy 

BioRES aims at introducing the innovative concept of Biomass Logistic and Trade Centres (BLTCs) in Serbia, Croatia and Bulgaria based on international cooperation with European technology leaders. The BLTCs as regional hubs will help increasing local supply and demand for woody bioenergy products.


(LCMW) Relevance: BLTC, supply chain


The BIOWAYS mission is to promote the huge potential of bio-based research results and raise public awareness of bio-based products, using a variety of communication techniques and through public engagement activities and the development of educational tools and materials. The BIOWAYS is an H2020-funded project started in 2017.


(LCMW) Relevance: One of the objectives of the project is to understand the characteristics and potential of bio-based products and applications, including waste valorisation.


ISABEL project is about promoting, supporting and developing community biogas in Europe. The project is set on providing all the framework conditions for biogas communities to shape, develop, thrive and works on all angles in order to pave the way for the transition from traditional supply chains to community ownership and to take full advantage of the ample societal benefits of local community-driven biogas systems, fuelled and inspired by social innovation principles. The project started at the beginning of 2016 and will end at the end of 2018.


(LCMW) Relevance: ISABEL project promotes local production-consumption systems of waste-based (ie. sustainable) biogas.


The main aim of this project is to support the sustainable delivery of non-food biomass feedstock at the local, regional and pan European level. It should proceed through developing strategies and
roadmaps, that will be informed by a “computerized and easy to use” toolset (and respective databases) with updated harmonized datasets.


(LCMW) Relevance: Identification and extensive characterisation of existing and future non-food biomass conversion technologies for energy and bio-based products (thermal conversion, anaerobic digestion, biochemical conversion). The aim is to assess new and existing logistic concepts, design the most promising logistic supply-chains for cases at local, regional and pan-European level.


The overall objective of BioBoost is to pave the way for de-central conversion of residual biomass to high energy density carriers, which can be utilised in large scale applications for the synthesis of transportation fuel and chemicals or directly in small-scale combined heat and power (CHP) plants.

Biodiversity and Energy wood (Biodiversität und Energieholz) 

The project activities focus on optimizing of the energy use of wood from maintenance work performed in landscape conservation areas, like orchards, meadows and hedges. Technically and financially feasible solutions will be investigated, which would also respect the local conditions, taking ecology into account.

Biomass energy use (Energetische Biomassenutzung) 

The funding programme aims at the research and development of energy efficient technologies as well as the optimisation of processes and procedures for supply with electricity and heat from biomass, in particular organic waste and residues. Feasibility studies, measure programmes as well as pilot and demonstration projects contribute crucially to an improved energetic biomass use.


(LCMW) Relevance: LCMW included in topic areas Utilisation of residues, Bio-methane, Regional Bioenergy.

BioWtL - Biowaste to liquid 

The aim of this project is to research the thermochemical conversion (Pyrolysis) of biogenic residues to provide alternative fuels. Both the technical feasibility for a practical application as well as the related economic and environmental aspects (including costs and greenhouse gas emissions) were considered.


(LCMW) Relevance: Technological and process approaches


EuroPruning project aims to be the take-off for an extensive utilisation of the agricultural prunings for energy in Europe. The project aims to the development of new improved logistics for pruning residues. This includes harvesting, transport and storage for agricultural prunings.


(LCMW) Relevance: Agricultural prunings (fruit tree, vineyards and olive grove prunings and branches from up-rooted trees). Participation of a greenGain project partner (CIRCE).


Florafuel AG has developed an innovative procedure which enables local authorities, farmers, composting plant operators and trade companies to process biomass and biogenic waste (such as grass, foliage, reeds, marshland cuttings, roadside cuttings and silage) into high-grade, regenerative CO2-neutral energy sources in the form of pellets and briquettes. The plants and dryers needed for this are developed and sold on the market by florafuel AG.
