Greening Energy in Rural Areas Through the Valorisation of Agricultural Residues


This event co-organised by Bioenergy Europe and AgroBioHeat project will present how better mobilization and valorisation of agri-residues can promote the greening of rural areas. This includes the improvement of air/soil quality by offering an alternative solution to open field burning practices and its derived air pollution while providing a clean heating solution. Representatives from EU institutions and the industry will outline how agro-biomass can play a key role to achieve EU climate targets, promote rural development and circular economy.
