Biomass has a large potential and its use as renewable fuel is increasing in recent years, however, some characteristics of this resource such as its low density and the high cost of transport, restrain the viability of bioenergy projects. Hence, an integral use of biomass can make this resource more competitive and as a consequence enable and strengthen industrial activity in the field of biomass of the participating regions.
 

 Main actions to carry out will be:

• Identification and characterization of energy crops in each region.
• Definition of methods for obtaining active principles.
• Establishment of processes for the energy use of by-product crops in a sustainable way.
• Economic analysis of processes.
• Elaboration of a methodological guide in the participant regions.
• Development of dissemination actions such as training courses, workshop and good practice guides aimed at biomass producers, businesses and planners.

 

Bioref

The participants will collaborate on the identification of energy crops and their high added value components suitable for the industry sector, analysing also the energy use of the by-products generated in the extraction process. Taking into account the benefits that the application of this innovative concept can assume in the participating regions, technical reports and dissemination actions will be carried out with the objective of introducing it in Regional Bioenergy Actions Plans.

The Interregional Cooperation Programme INTERREG IVC, financed by the European Union’s Regional Development Fund, helps Regions of Europe work together to share experience and good practice in the areas of innovation, the knowledge economy, the environment and risk prevention. EUR 302 million is available for project funding but, more than that, a wealth of knowledge and potential solutions are also on hand for regional policy-makers.
