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

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.

(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.

Bioenergy-region Ludwigsfelde Plus 

This project aims at conducting public relations work in renewables, with focus on bioenergy, in order to gain public acceptance for the activities (information campaigns, events, cooperation with schools, etc.)

(LCMW) Relevance: Promotion of bioenergy for better acceptance of projects

Biogas in Buonconvento ? Let's talk about it 

Best practise examples of good governance of decision making processes. A local government appointed a jury and a Guarantee institution for providing suggestions about the issuing of the building permit to a company for the realization of a biogas plant project.

Composting Plant [k]nord 

The story: Earlier, there were technical problems in the composting plant causing smell in the municipality; subsequently the site visit for the public was organised to exlain the causes of the problem; two contact person in the town were installed and are informed by the company in case of expected smell occurence (e.g. by maintenance work).

(LCMW) Relevance: Composting of green residues from private gardens combined with acceptance good practices

Heating with hedges 

A governance mechanism for the maintenance of hedges on a cultivated area: ca. 170 km of hedges were maintained in the Münsterland in 2011/2012; 30 municipal customers; 140 private customers; 25 participating forestry contractor companies; ca. 30 600 m3 of poured (m3p ) wood chips harvested; heating performance ca 24 800 MWh; compared to heating oil saved 7680 tonns CO2; additional 60 km of hedges in the season 2012/2013 . Hedges were used for heating purposes.

Leaf-fall into briquettes 

The story: First, the energy use of trimming residues from hedges and small wood for the city of Ibbenbüren was introduced (drying, fractionation, direct combustion of the rough fraction, briquetting of the fine fraction). Then, the idea of an extension of this concept and energy utilization of unused leaf-fall, which is a very problematic material occurred. The initiator of the activity developed a procedure for briquetting of the leaf-fall. Because it was an innovative procedure and he himself is rather unconventional, his work was not always accepted with understanding. He decided to organise an open-door day of the facility and invited the citizens and the local press. At that day, the delivery of leaf-fall was cost-free. The work process of the facility was demonstrated from the processing to the heat production, which the visitors could directly experience. It is aimed to introduce the free delivery for local citizens in the future.

Public consultation for the Massa Martana CHP project 

The municipality of Massa Martana has launched on its website a public online consultation about the realization of a new co-generation plant using renewable sources. The project, was considered an essential step in the process of redevelopment of the former disused industrial area in the hamlet of Villa S. Faustino (locations Red Water). Everyone cold have their say via email; the consultation lasted for ten days and served to identify the topics that were the subject of the conference that took place with major national and regional leaders and representatives of environmental groups and health facilities.
