PROFORBIOMED
Description: 
PROFORBIOMED promotes renewable energies (RE) in mediterranean regions by developing an integrated strategy for the use of the forest biomass as a RE source, recovering the forest biomass potential, developing technical and legal aspects and promoting the use of forestry biomass for energy. The strategy relies on the involvement of key stakeholders in a forestry biomass production chain that takes into account sustainability and compatibility with other uses and provides new economic opportunities. The project will focus on the current weak points that prevent forestry biomass to be relevant for a sustainable development of territories, developing technical issues, supporting tools and policies, involving all stakeholders and creating structures that support the cooperation between public and private actors. On the other hand, it will develop pilot experiences on 13 topics, trying to reinforce the cooperation among stakeholders and serving as demonstration and transfer tools of know-how on technical and management issues.
