The Biomass TradeCentre II project

Promotion of new investments in wood biomass production

There are still unused potentials in the forests all across Europe. Actions envisaged in this WP will contribute to sustainable mobilisation of wood biomass from forests, short rotation plantations and other resources by mobilising potential investors to create new business.

Implementation of Biomass trade and logistics centers

Local biomass markets in many countries are fragmented and unorganised. Biomass logistic and trade centres (BLTC) are a new and innovative way to develop and organise local biomass supply. BLTC are regional centres with optimised logistics and trading organisation, where different biomass fuels...


Implementation of wood energy contracting

Energy contracting is a market orientated model for selling heat produced from biomass to one or more users (as local or district heating). It is a new and innovative opportunity for investments with high added value appropriate for forest owners, farmers, and other target groups in rural areas.


Promotion of Quality standards and sustainability criteria

Biomass quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) and tracing the origin of wood biomass will play an important role in the biomass heat and electricity market in the years to come (National schemes will support only quality and sustainable produced from renewable energy sources).


The BiomassTradeCentreII project
aims at increasing the production and the use of energy from wood biomass by organising motivation events that will engage identified target groups to invest in biomass business and biomass logistic and trade centres (BLTC) in 9 EU countries (Austria, Croatia, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Romania, Slovenia and Spain), by presenting clear, integrated and market orientated information to potential investors: farmers and forest owners, forest entrepreneurs, wood energy contractors and other stakeholders regarding business opportunities to produce and sell energy products and services to the market. It will also foster wood energy contracting between biomass providers and potential users.

The proposed project will further develop the idea of its predecessor - the BiomassTrade Centers project . The main lesson learned from this project is that apart from a concept of trade and logistics centres, quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) are decisive for a greater consumption of energy from biomass on the market. Given this, it also aims at implementing biomass quality standards in biomass business, which will encourage the consumption and boost the biomass market and at creating a network of wood biomass laboratories that will help biomass producers and users to check wood biomass quality.
