Stakeholder workshop on innovative lignocellulosic biomass cropping schemes and supply chains
ADVANCEFUEL aims to increase the share of renewable energy in the future energy mix by increasing the share of sustainable advanced biofuels and renewable alternative fuels in the final EU transport energy consumption. The whole value chain will be assessed in the course of the project and ADVANCEFUEL will regularly engage key players to validate project results on specific topics and to contribute to the development of supporting guidelines and tools.
In this context, the second ADVANCEFUEL stakeholder workshop will be held on 20-21 November in Brussels, Belgium. The workshop will bring together a number of European projects and other relevant stakeholders, to discuss innovative lignocellulosic cropping systems and supply chains. ADVANCEFUEL is organising the workshop in co-operation with the SEEMLA project, back to back with that project’s final event.
The workshop will contribute to ADVANCEFUEL’s understanding of barriers regarding biomass supply by scrutinising innovative cropping schemes, exploring the challenges and opportunities of different supply and value chains, and comparing potential business models of feedstock provisioning.
The workshop will be co-ordinated by the Leibniz Institute for Agricultural Engineering and Bioeconomy (ATB), and will include keynote presentations from European projects working in the fields of innovative cropping schemes on marginal land (FORBIO, MAGIC, BECOOL, LIBBIO) as well as value chains and business models (UP-RUNNING, GRACE). The workshop will mix presentations from the projects with interactive discussion sessions that will involve all attendees to shape ADVANCEFUEL’s final recommendations.
