Project description

The economic viability of using biomass for energy and environmental questions, related to e.g. biodiversity and soil fertility, need to be considered. The project BalticBiomass4Value therefore enhances the capacity of public and private actors within the Baltic Sea region to produce bioenergy in a more environmentally sustainable and economically viable way.

BalticBiomass4Value develops good practice models for small and medium sized enterprises in producing bioenergy and integrated side bio-products in the Baltic Sea region. The models are based on the current mapping of the region’s biomass resources, conversion technologies and value chains, as well as the outlook of the future market.

Last but not least, BalticBiomass4Value fosters links among academic and research institutions and businesses around the Baltic Sea to facilitate knowledge and technology transfer.
