Baltic ForBio

There is a growing demand for forest biomass from by-products of the wood industry to be used as a source of renewable energy. The project exploits logging residues, which are usually discarded after forest harvests, and small trees that are cut during forest thinning. Along with guidelines for using new technology, the project compiles information on wood energy potential to shape innovative business models and develop small-scale bioenergy plants in rural areas of the Baltic Sea region.
