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.

Biomass Futures 

The Biomass Futures Project will assess the role that biomass can play in meeting EU energy policy targets. It will develop tailored information packages for stakeholders, as well as inform and support policy makers at both the European and national levels.

http://www.biomassfutures.eu/

(LCMW) Relevance: Utilization of diverse feedstock; including road side verges and landscape wood.

Biomass Policies 

The Biomass Polices project aims to develop integrated policies for the mobilisation of “resource efficient” indigenous bioenergy ‘value chains’ in order to contribute towards the 2020 bioenergy targets set within NREAPs & 2030, and other EU27/ national policy measures. It will do so by capitalising on the knowledge of three recent studies (Biobench ; Biomass Futures and the recent (2012) study from European Environment Agency ) and through concise collaboration with selected Energy Agencies (in the participating countries, i.e. AT, BE, DE, EL, ES, HR, IE, NL, PL, SK, UK) and key stakeholders from the policy and market fields.

(LCMW) Relevance: Resource efficient bioenergy value chains.

PROFORBIOMED 

PROFORBIOMED promotes renewable energies (RE) in MED areas by developing an integrated strategy for the use of the forest biomass as a RE source, recovering the forest biomass potential, developing technical and legal aspects and promoting the use of forestry biomass for energy.

http://proforbiomed.eu/

(LCMW) Relevance: Feedstock: forest biomass

RUBIRES: Rural Biological Resources 

The specific objective is to increase the use of renewable resources and create regional added value. Therefore new tools and methods have to be developed and implemented. The project is based on three major items: development and improvement of material flow management, the management of land-use demands, the implementation of the method to manage regional added value partnerships and chains.

(LCMW) Relevance: Summary describing experience and results of interviews performed with wood processing companies.
