Project description

The project aim is to foster and accelerate development and use of biomass in North West Europe, to facilitate the sustainable achievement of 2020 energy objectives, and to make EU a world-class centre for Biomass. It involves organisations from UK, Ireland, Germany, Luxembourg, Netherlands and Belgium, along with observers from France and Switzerland NWE currently has a strong reliance on imported energy, offering clear potential for greater biomass utilisation. However municipalities and regions across the NWE are facing common challenges of how they can reduce waste going to land and meet energy demands through biomass. Some NWE countries are sharing biomass potential and expertise, but at present this activity is neither co-ordinated not matched with commercial exploitation.
