S2BIOM - Delivery of sustainable supply of non-food biomass to support a “resource-efficient” Bioeconomy in Europe

The main aim of this project was to support the sustainable delivery of non-food biomass feedstock at local, regional and pan European level through developing strategies, and roadmaps that will be informed by a “computerized and easy to use” toolset (and respective databases) with updated harmonized datasets at local, regional, national and pan European level for EU27, western Balkans, Turkey and Ukraine.

INFRES – Innovative and effective technology and logistics for forest residual biomass supply in the EU

"We keep EU's forest energy promises"

INFRES aimed to accelerate the technological development and open new paths to EU’s renewable targets by producing research based knowledge, technological solutions and service innovations for forest residue feedstock supply. The project aimed at high efficiency and precise deliveries of woody feedstock to heat, power and biorefining industries by:

Forestry Bioenergy Supply Technologies Transfer to CEE Countries

The study addressed the use of modern forestry technologies such as CTL machines, harvester concepts for thinning operations and technologies relevant for energy wood production. The study also included an analysis of supply/production chains in Poland as an integral part of energy development projections both at the regional and national levels in Eastern Europe.

FLOW - Modeling Fiber Flows: Bioenergy Potential and Carbon Footprint Mitigation

The objective of this project was to give information on how to take into account CO2 sequestrated in the forest in calculation of carbon footprint of forest products. This information will help the industry sector's Research and Development to optimize the use of biomass proactively in terms of EU's climate change policy. The project also increased knowledge on fiber based product's carbon economy through several case studies that furthermore give scientifically based results to be used in environmental communication to the authorities and customers.
