Mobilization of woody biomass for energy and industrial use - Smart logistics for forest residues, prunings and dedicated plantations
– INFRES, LogistEC and EuroPruning -seminar
Tuesday 19 May 2015, FAO Headquarters, Viale delle Terme di Caracalla, Rome
Improved logistics will help create a market for biomass feedstocks such as agricultural residues, forestry residues, and energy crops. In the three EU-funded projects INFRES, LogistEC and EuroPrunning 63 organisations and companies, collaborate to develop such smart logistics. They field-demonstrate practical solutions implemented in rural communities to harvest, store and transport lignocellulosic biomass for the production of bioenergy and biomaterials.
Further to developing technologies and adapting machines, the three projects also assess the environmental, economic and social sustainability of the proposed supply chains, as well as the barriers to innovation in the respective sectors.
The one day conference will showcase key results from the three projects. Participation of the conference is free of charge. Travel, accommodation and meals are at your own expense.
Deadline for registration is one month prior to the event latest 19 April 2015.
