AgroBioHeat Ecodesign Webinar

The Horizon2020 project AgroBioHeat is organising a webinar on 19 May, 14:30-17:00 to discuss the review of the Ecodesign Regulation, the possible inclusion of emission limits for non-woody biomass boilers in its scope as well as the potential and limitations of agrobiomass within the Ecodesign revision. 

The event will present an overview on the current legislative developments on the Ecodesign revision and the recommendations by AgroBioHeat on the possible inclusion of agrobiomass (e.g. olive stones, Miscanthus, straw prunings, etc.) in the scope. During a roundtable discussion, industry experts and representatives of national associations will discuss together with policy makers about the potential of agrobiomass and the barriers within the context of the revision of the Ecodesign Regulation.

The event is open to companies, national associations, policy makers and other actors interested in agrobiomass developments.

About AgroBioHeat

The Horizon 2020 funded project AgroBioHeat “Promoting the penetration of agrobiomass heating solutions in European rural areas” aims to produce a mass deployment of improved and market-ready agrobiomass heating solutions in Europe. Agrobiomass is a large, underexploited, and indigenous resource, which can support the achievement of the European Energy and Climate targets while promoting rural development and circular economy.
