Workshop: AgroBioheat & BIOFIT


Agrobiomass: a key resource for the European energy transition

Huge volumes of biomass are generated every year in Europe from agricultural activities. However, despite its huge potential, agrobiomass is mostly underutilised and often mismanaged.

Technological developments, novel organization models and new policies promise to transform the role of agrobiomass in Europe and enable it as a key resource for the transition of the energy system. In this workshop, the AgroBioHeat and BIOFIT projects join forces with market actors, manufacturers and researchers to offer a glimpse on key supply chain and technical developments in the field of agrobiomass utilisation: from small scale heating to industrial use!

AgroBioHeat is a Horizon 2020 market uptake project that aims to promote renewable heating solutions based on agrobiomass in rural Europe.

The BIOFIT Horizon 2020 project intends to support and initiate bioenergy retrofitting opportunities in five industry sectors: first-generation biofuels, pulp and paper, fossil refineries, fossil power and CHP plants.

Participation in this workshop is open and free-of-charge for all interested parties. Space limitations may apply. For registration, please use the link for the EBF conference. For further information, you may contact Manolis Karampinis (Centre for Research and Technology Hellas).

The AgroBioHeat and BIOFIT projects have received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No 818369 and 817999.
