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.

http://bioresproject.eu/

(LCMW) Relevance: BLTC, supply chain

BIOWAYS 

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.

http://www.bioways.eu/

(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 

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.

http://isabel-project.eu

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

S2Biom 

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.

http://www.s2biom.eu/en/

(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.

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.

(LCMW) Relevance: Utilization of wood from landscape conservation areas maintenance.

Bioenergy Promotion 

The principles and criteria developed in the Main stage project cover all use of biomass for energy purposes (not only biofuels and bioliquids) and include biodiversity, resource efficiency (including land use), energy efficiency, climate change mitigation efficiency, social well-being and economic prosperity.

(LCMW) Relevance: Utilization of woody biomass (logging residues, LCMW biomass from roadside vegetation). Participation of greenGain project partners (COALS, FNR)

Bioenergy-Regions (Bioenergie-Regionen) 

The aim of funding was creating functional networks. The networks received in the regional strategy a crucial role and contributed to the valorisation of existing biomass potential. The priority was a sustainable development, which also led to new jobs in the region.

(LCMW) Relevance: Diverse feedstock; LCMW biomass among others. Participation of a greenGain project partner (FNR).

Biomass Trade Centre 1 & 2 

The Biomass Trade Centre II project aimed at increasing the production and the use of energy from wood biomass by organizing motivation events. They engaged target groups to invest in biomass business and biomass logistic & trade centres (BLTC) in 9 EU countries by presenting clear, integrated and market orientated information to potential investors: farmers and forest owners, forest entrepreneurs, wood energy contractors and other stakeholders regarding business opportunities to produce and sell energy products and services to the market. It also fostered wood energy contracting between biomass providers and potential users.

(LCMW) Relevance: Feedstock: woody biomass.

LogistEC 

The project focuses on improvement of all biomass value chain’s components and assesses the sustainability in terms of environmental, economic and social impacts.

http://www.logistecproject.eu/

(LCMW) Relevance: . Innovative techniques for crop management, biomass harvesting, storage and transport provide a possibility to increase biomass supply whilst keeping costs down and minimizing adverse environmental impacts.

TWECOM 

The TWECOM project wants to sustainably valorise the, until now unused, biomass from landscape elements for heat and energy production on a local scale. Landscape elements like hedgerows had an economic function in the past and are typical for a large part of NW-Europe.

(LCMW) Relevance: Utilization of biomass from landscape elements (mainly hedgerows).
