Agrobiomass: A Rural Solution in the Green Transformation
This event will provide an overview of the potential of agrobiomass in rural areas highlighted from different perspectives from policy makers, industry experts, national associations and other stakeholders with a focus on the best practices to be shared and discussed with the audience.
Additionally, as the event marks the final conference of the AgroBioHeat project, it will also touch upon how the achievements of the project can be applied to benefit future policies related to the EU Green Deal.
The event will introduce the topic with an overview of the policy framework and the role of biomass in the agricultural context as well as being part of the solution to achieve the EU Green Deal’s objectives. Followed by a roundtable discussion where a panel with distinguished guests will assess the potential of agrobiomass, the role of the current and future policy framework, and present success stories and initiatives to further develop this sector.

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.
This project has received funding from the Horizon 2020 EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation under Grant Agreement No 818369.
