BioEnergy European Projects

 

 

The goal of BioEnergy Farm II is to open the market for micro-scale digestion. By opening the market we believe the amount of sustainable energy produced on farms can increase by 60 MW.

The objective of BIOSURF (BIOmethane as SUstainable and Renewable Fuel) is to increase the production and use of biomethane (from animal waste, other waste materials and sustainable biomass), for grid injection and as transport fuel, by removing non-technical barriers and by paving the way towards a European biomethane market.

Website

The Bin2Grid project is promoting segregated collection of food waste from specific and various waste producers (food and beverage industry, catering, residential) in order to produce biofuel (biomethane) and its usage through local filling stations network.

Website

SUCELLOG aims to widespread the participation of the agrarian sector in the sustainable supply of solid biofuels in Europe. SUCELLOG action focuses in an almost unexploited logistic concept: the implementation of agro-industry logistic centres in the agro-industry as a complement to their usual activity evidencing the large synergy existing between the agro- economy and the bio-economy.

Website

The overall goal of the SRCplus project is to support and speed-up the development of local supply chains of Short Rotation Woody Crops (SRC) by implementing various capacity building measures and regional mobilization actions for the key actors in local supply chains.

Website

Project greenGain is looking for solutions to increase energy utilisation of biomass feedstock coming from landscape conservation and maintenance work carried out in the public interest. The main target groups are regional and local players, who are responsible for maintenance and conservation work and for the biomass residue management in their regions.

Website

BioRES aims at introducing the innovative concept of Biomass Logistic and Trade Centres (BLTCs) in Serbia, Croatia and Bulgaria based on international cooperation with European technology leaders. The BLTCs as regional hubs will help increasing local supply and demand for woody bioenergy products.

Website

Bioenergy4Business The international Bioenergy4Business project supports and promotes the (partial) substitution of fossil fuels (such as coal, oil, gas) used for heating with available bioenergy sources (such as by-products of the wood-based industry, forest biomass, pellets, straw and other agricultural biomass products) in the European Union and beyond.

Website

The ISABEL project aims to foster the concept of community biogas and lead the way for its market take-up based on a vision that includes three core interacting elements: (i) local production & consumption, (ii) community involvement, and (iii) sustainable biogas.

Website

 ISAAC is a project financed by Horizon 2020 Programme, whose main aim is to remove non-technical barriers, such as lack of public acceptance and coordination for the biogas facilities diffusion, normative and legislative inadequacies, in order to support biogas/biomethane market penetration in Italy and make plants implementation easier within the national context.

Website

The main objective of the H2020 funded EU project SEEMLA (acronym for “Sustainable exploitation of biomass for bioenergy from marginal lands”) is the establishment of suitable innovative land-use strategies for a sustainable production of plant-based energy on marginal lands while improving general ecosystem services.

Website

 FORBIO project will demonstrate the viability of using land in EU Member States for sustainable bioenergy feedstock production that does not affect the supply of food and feed, in addition to not interfering with land currently used for recreational and/or conservation purposes.

Website

SECURECHAIN’s main objective is to promote a Sustainable Supply Chain Management (SSCM) practice for bioenergy that meets highest environmental quality and financial viability standards and targets local biomass suppliers, energy producers and financial sector players.

Website

The overall objective of this project is to develop integrated solutions to promote the sustainable market for Mediterranean solid biofuels for residential heating.

Website

The realisation of an energy-positive Waste Water Treatment Plants requires a combination of new concepts for wastewater treatment together with an optimised integration of existing technologies in all side aspects. POWERSTEP uses concepts and technologies that have been tested in laboratories and pilot scale plants.

Website

Biogas2020 is a transboundary cooperation for biogas development in Öresund-Kattegat-Skagerrak. The project will bring together the currently dispersed knowledge about biogas under a single, strong, collaboration platform. The aim is to create synergies and partnerships that develop knowledge about biogas, and lay the foundations for sustainable production and increased demand.

Website

BioEnergyTrain brings together fifteen partners from six EU countries to create new post-graduate level curricula in key bioenergy disciplines, and a network of tertiary education institutions, research centres, professional associations, and industry stakeholders encompassing the whole value chain of bioenergy from field/forest to integration into the sustainable energy systems of buildings, settlements and regions.

Website

 The objective of the BioVill project is to transfer and adapt experiences gained in countries where bioenergy villages already exists (Germany and Austria) to countries with less examples in this sector (Slovenia, Serbia, Croatia, Macedonia and Romania). The project fosters the development of the bioenergy sector in selected target countries by strengthening the role of locally produced biomass as a main contributor for energy supply on local level, considering opportunities of market uptake or expansion for local farmers, wood producers or SMEs.

Website

uP_running project aims to unlock the European strong potential of woody biomass residues produced by Agrarian Pruning and Plantation Removals (APPR) and to promote its sustainable use as energy feedstock. uP_running has been constructed with the ambition of being the prelude of a self-expansion of APPR wood utilization in Europe.

Led by the School of Biosystems and Food Engineering at University College Dublin, the consortium of 26 partners comprises partners from 8 EU countries, two partners from mainland China, and one from Hong Kong. The project takes a holistic approach to understanding and addressing how to make best use of the full range of waste streams associated with the agri-food industry. It will deliver the AgroCycle Protocol, a blueprint for achieving sustainable agri-food waste valorisation.

Website

 BIO4ECO aims to improve regional and national policy processes and policy implementation and delivery addressing the transition to a low carbon economy, in relation with renewable energy use, energy efficiency of building, and forest and agricultural biomass.

Website

Even though Heritage Cities have probably developed interesting solutions and policies in many fields, running waste-related services is complicated in such scenarios. In such a framework, the aim of INTHERWASTE is European Heritage Cities to exchange experiences and policies for efficient and sustainable management of municipal waste and  in order to contribute  through mutual capacity-building, policy learning and drafting action plans – to the environmental performance of waste management in EU cities.
