The BIOPATH project will perform an assessment in the field of biomass resources and the value chain related to its use for energy generation / conversion.
 

The regionalization of energy plans, the adaptation to different regional technologies, market opportunities and local requirements can impact at a wider level on the fragmentation of standards and on the lack of a unique method for a common evaluation of the biomass resources related to energy use, the regulatory framework, traceability and to environmental impact. Specific attention will be dedicated to the “bio” term related to the energy sector (bio-energy resources) in the same process of certification taken in bio-farming for agricultural products.
 

The BIOPATH project will introduce quality evaluation systems for a standardization of biomass and solid biofuels and the creation of a certified value chain. The traceability method will be able to assess a value for commercialized products, and their use in the different commercial contexts. The performance and reliability of boilers and the efficiency of energy conversion in biofuels depend significantly on the supplied fuel / organic compound.

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.
