Valorising the Potential of Wood Waste in EU Regions and Industrial Bio-based Ecosystems

Wood waste and wood residues are an important and underestimated source of biomass, which can be recycled for both material and energy use. There are several challenges to manage, treat and extract value from wood waste value chains. The BioReg project aims to engage stakeholders and to establish a platform to transfer success factors and solutions for the valorisation of wood waste. This seminar will provide a presentation of the BioReg project, the best practices and success factors among the European demonstration regions that have established relevant mechanisms throughout the entire wood waste management value chain (collection, treatment and recovery for energy and materials and product management  – gas, ash or other waste resulting from the recovery processes). A final discussion with international experts and local stakeholders, open to the public, will complement the presentations.
