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.

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.

http://www.bioenergie-regionen.de/

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

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.

(LCMW) Relevance: Promotion of public participation for better acceptance of projects

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.

http://www.biomasstradecentre2.eu/Biomass-Trade-CentreII/

(LCMW) Relevance: Feedstock: woody biomass.

BIOMASUD 

Project creates mechanisms for sustainability and valuation of the solid biomass market in the space of the SUDOE (Spain, south of France and Portugal); Stakeholder database

http://biomasud.eu/en/

(LCMW) Relevance: The creation of employment, economic growth of the regions, energy autonomy for the SUDOE and decrease of the energy cost for the consumers.

BIORAISE 

GIS tool for Biomass Resources Assessment in Southern Europe

http://bioraise.ciemat.es/Bioraise/

(LCMW) Relevance: Maps of diverse LCMW biomas utilization industries, industrial equipment and machines and research centres.

EU 2020 Going Local 

The focus of the project lies on the transfer of good practices into mainstream EU Structural Funds programmes within the project’s sub-theme “Energy and Sustainable transports”.

http://www.eu2020goinglocal.eu/subpage.aspx@MenuID=68731&showmenuid=68731

(LCMW) Relevance: Improving regional policies; motivate local and regional politicans to get more involved whith EU strategies on sustainability; waste to energy

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.

(LCMW) Relevance: Use of landscape mainenance biomass for heating purposes

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.
