- Assessment of the biomass potential in an area.
- Logistic analysis of biomass supply.
- Development of energy crops for biofuel production.
- Sustainability studies.
The main objective of this project, in which biomass CENER Department acts as a coordinator, is to analyze the sustainable solid lignocellulosic biomass supply and some of their major bioenergy vectors from regions worldwide with a great export potential (Canada, Latin America, Asia, Russia, etc.) to the the European Union countries. This analysis includes a technical assessment of its feasibility, costs and sustainability issues with the idea of achieving a stable market which allows the development of the European bio-economy beyond 2020.
Aumento del uso de leña mejorando la calidad del combustible así como reduciendo las emisiones de combustión.
ENERMASS Project (2012-2014)
Project which objective is the creation of a transnational innovation cluster for biomass valorization into energy, in order to tackle the lack of an entrepreneurial coordination structure on energetic valorization of biomass at SUDOE level (France-Spain-Portugal).
Proyecto BIOCLUS (2009-2012)
This project is focused on the promotion of R&D&i for a sustainable use of biomass resources, both forest and herbaceous, and aims at boosting the regional competitiveness and growth in five European cluster regions: Central Finland, Wielkopolska (Poland), Western Macedonia (Greece), Slovakia and Navarre.
