INFRES Workshop “Adaptation of forestry practices and business innovations for Bioenergy supply”
The demand for bioenergy is increasing. Ambitious EU policy targets demand that more biomass is provided from Europe’s forests. The FP7 research project INFRES (Innovative and effective technology and logistics for forest residual biomass supply in the EU) develops innovative technological and business solutions for this, under the theme “We keep EU’s Forest Energy Promises”.
Among other topics, INFRES assesses (a) customers and markets of forest biomass for the future, (b) the adaptation of forest practices to improved biomass recovery and (c) business, service and integration solutions for woody feedstock supply. The results to date from research in this area will be presented in a workshop, linked with the FEC-FORMEC-2014 conference in Gérardmer, France, entitled “Adaptation of forestry practices and business innovations for Bioenergy supply”.
The INFRES workshop is targeting academic and all other actors in the forestry sector, as well as other stakeholders that are actively involved, or have an interest, in the field of forest fuel supply. It will be held as a special pre-conference event on Tuesday 23 September from 16:00 to 18:00 hours, just before the FEC-FORMEC-2014 ice-breaking reception.
Participation in the INFRES workshop is free of charge and open to all (including those not participating in FEC-FORMEC-2014), bur your prior registration is highly appreciated.
