Mediterranean forests play a pivotal role for local economies by providing a large array of ecosystem services and goods.
The BioMonitor project wants to address the information gap and mismatch of emerging innovative industries coming from the chemical and materials sectors that deal with the production of bio-based intermediate and end-products. It also wants to resolve the lack of indicators needed to quantify the bioeconomy’s economic, environmental and social impacts in the EU and its Member States.
In this small study the potential sources of bioenergy from forests will be analysed and their utilisation possibilities discussed. The client of the study is DGIII of the EU.
