The Project 4Biomass fosters usage of bioenergy throughout Central Europe (CE) via turning know-how to show-how.
The project contributes to sustainable exploitation of biomass in two ways:
For biomass as a limited resource, a political framework is needed to regulate its usage. In this context the project 4Biomass analyses the exploitable biomass potential in CE and its respective trade. A core activity is an internationally aligned stakeholder dialogue. (“What do you expect from your national Biomass Action Plan/Renewable Energy Action Plan (nBAP/REAP)?”).
Further a coordinated regulatory framework – a Transnational Action Plan directed at policy makers and implementing authorities – will be developed giving advice on how an integrated and transnational coordinated bioenergy policy can be designed.
Implementation of policies will be facilitated by the preparation of a Transnational Forum for stakeholders to exchange experiences on- and to further coordinate, national policy implementations.
Moreover, criteria for giving a mandate to “Central European Biomass Centres” will be elaborated. They will address transnational biomass & sustainability issues and in addition play vital roles in the Transnational Network 4Biomass. National networks of stakeholders will be optimized and enlarged in order to operate as part of this network. The Transnational Network 4Biomass will support international cooperation, exchange of information about best practices, new technologies and other ways of biomass utilization. This supports efficient transnational management of biomass.
This project is implemented through
the CENTRAL EUROPE Programme co-financed by the ERDF
