The FILABIOM consulting procedure is intended for guiding design, implementation and territorial integration of agricultural biomass supply chains from farmers to biomass valorization units. It has been built to contribute to rural development, to propose fossil alternatives, to promote respectful environmental practices, etc.
This procedure targets stakeholders that carry out a project of agricultural biomass valorization (whether for a use in chemistry, materials or energy sectors) such as an industrialist, a local community services as urban community for example, a farmer, an agricultural cooperative, etc. It is also intended for agencies who advice these project’s managers.
The FILABIOM procedure breaks down the process of setting up a biomass supply chain in eight steps. For each of them, tools are available to guide the project manager and his councilor in their reflection process (guides, fact sheets and videos). These tools are made to assist the project manager for:
– defining and conducting his actions
– supplementing his actions with knowledge, references and feedbacks linked to biomass production and mobilization and to the creation of a territorial dynamic around a project
The procedure and its tools result from a multi-partners project, called “Demonstrating Sites Network”, which has been led from 2015 to 2020. This partnership is composed of technical, scientific and economic organizations.
