BIOREG project event will take place in Lisbon, Portugal on Wednesday, 29th of May during EUBCE 2019


The largest gathering of biomass experts – EUBCE 2019 will be held between 27th and 30th of May 2019 in Lisbon Congress Centre (Lisbon, Portugal). The leading platform for the biomass specialists addresses topics from biomass to bioliquids and biofuels for heat and electricity, transport and biobased products. It will cover all aspects of each value chain, from supply and logistics to conversion technologies, from industrial application of research results to impacts on the environment, from market and trade aspects to policy strategies, not least to the role of biomass as a source in integrated energy systems.

During the #EUBCE2019, BIOREG project will take the opportunity to participate in the conference and present the project achievements as well as promote the BIOREG European Wood Waste Platform

BIOREG project event will start on Wednesday, 29th of May from 15:15h. It will focus on valorising the potential of Wood Waste in EU Regions and Industrial Bio-based Ecosystems. Wood waste and wood residues are an important and underestimated source of biomass, which can be recycled for both material and energy use. There are several challenges to manage, treat and extract value from wood waste value chains. The BIOREG project will be engaging stakeholders for its platform who are welcome to join it and contribute and benefit to a common space of discussing success factors and transferring practices and solutions for the valorisation of wood waste.

The seminar will provide a presentation of the BIOREG project, the best practices and success factors among the European demonstration regions that have established relevant mechanisms throughout the entire wood waste management value chain (collection, treatment and recovery for energy and materials and product management – gas, ash or other waste resulting from the recovery processes). A final discussion with international experts and local stakeholders, open to the public, will complement the presentations.

You can find below the Agenda for the event and our speakers:

The BIOREG project and the European Wood Waste Platform, Maurizio Cocchi, EUBIA, Belgium

Wood Waste Biomass Potential in the European Union, Magdalena Borzecka, IUNG, Poland
