About the Working Group

The Working Group on Agricultural Biomass and Energy Crops (ABEC) was established in March 2017 to promote specific types of biomass feedstocks such as solid vegetal residue streams from agriculture and dedicated perennial lignocellulosic crops. Both result in abundant feedstock sources that are – to this day – largely underutilised. The Working Group aims to support the development of this sector and communicate on the potential and benefits of these biomass types at EU-level.

Key topics

  • Land use
  • Carbon farming
  • Decarbonisation of rural areas
