Europe 4Biomass project ends on 30th of November 2012

After four years of project activities the project will end on 30th of November 2012. 48 months of project activities brought expected and unexpected results and achievements. Partly, these results will have a further influence on the CENTRAL EUROPEAN political framework on bioenergy. The foremost objective of 4Biomass was to support the Central European Member States in their implementation of the national Renewable Energy Action Plans, foster biomass and increase the share of bioenergy in CENTRAL EUROPE.

Austria Transnational Forum and Study Tour of the 4Biomass project

On the 29th of October 2012 a Transnational Forum with the main title "Biomass for Central Europe: Which Strategies for a Limited Resource?" will take place in Ceremonial Hall of the Federal Agricultural Chamber, 1014 Vienna, Schauflergasse 6. The Study Visit will be organized a day later on the 30th of October.

The purpose of the Transnational Forum is to discuss the subject of biomass as a source for renewable energy in Central Europe with respect to the outcomes of the project 4Biomass. The biomass potential to produce energy is remarkable in all the Central European countries, Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia. However, it is not unlimited.

Europe Pre-feasibility studies for Austria, Hungary, Poland and Slovenia published

The project 4Biomass has published four pre-feasibility studies for bioenergy projects in the Central Europe.

The presented projects are good practice examples for decentral heat production based on solid biomass. Due to current support schemes in i.e. Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland, biomass is used in cofiring with coal for electricity production. The large scale use of biomass causes sustainability problems, which could be avoided by i.e. decentral energy production. On the other hand, there is still unused biomass potential which could be used in the Central European countries to reach the national targets in the Renewable Energy Action Plans.
