We offer you cooperation within the framework of BIOPLAT-EU project: "Promoting Sustainable Use of Underutilized Lands for Bioenergy Production through a Web-Based Platform for Europe" of the European Program "Horizon 2020 – Competitive Low Carbon Energy".
Through a web-based platform (www.bioplat.eu) the BIOPLAT-EU project will promote and support the uptake of sustainable bioenergy projects on marginal, underutilized and contaminated lands (MUC lands). These lands cannot be used for food production or for recreational and conservation purposes, but in some cases, they still retain the potential to produce biomass for non-food and non-feed purposes (willow, poplar, miscanthus, etc.).
A web-based platform will include a map of areas unsuitable for agricultural production in Europe and in Ukraine and a public user-friendly tool using global information system that will assess the environmental, social and techno-economic sustainability aspects of defined value chains for bioenergy production on these lands.
In case of cooperation with the Project you will:
- get access and support for using the web-based platform with a map of MUC lands and an online tool for assessing the sustainability aspects of defined value chains for bioenergy production on these lands. The platform will be a core source of information and utility related to this topic for stakeholders as all the existing data will be downloadable for free.
- get the provision of technical support on aspects linked to biomass production and processing, market access, management and access to finance, etc.
- take part in technical excursions and seminars in the framework of the Project.
