The Global Bioenergy Partnership lead by FAO of the UN

GBEP was founded in 2006 on the idea that bioenergy can significantly contribute to energy access and security, climate change mitigation, food security, and ultimately sustainable development.

SEEMLA project - Horizon 2020

The main objective of the H2020 funded EU project SEEMLA (acronym for “Sustainable exploitation of biomass for bioenergy from marginal lands”) is the establishment of suitable innovative land-use strategies for a sustainable production of plant-based energy on marginal lands while improving general ecosystem.

MISCOMAR project - Horizon 2020

"Miscanthus biomass options for contaminated and marginal land: quality, quantity and soil interactions". The innovative character of this project is a holistic approach which combines the identification of suitable utilisation options, especially for biomass from contaminated land, and the integration of Miscanthus cultivation into landscapes and crop rotations

BIOSKOH project - Horizon 2020

The BIOSKOH project will pave the way for a Second Generation European Circular Bioeconomy by showcasing how a number Innovation Stepping Stones can realise a breakthrough in techno-economic viability of lignocellulosic biorefineries. It will do so through a two stage investment process and development path to realise the largest (110 kton) second generation (2G) biorefinery in Europe.

LIBBIO project - Horizon 2020

"Lupinus mutabilis for Increased Biomass from marginal lands and value for BIOrefineries". Breeding and cropping research is performed in the LIBBIO project for maximizing the yield and value of lupin agriculture in different European marginal lands conditions, with respect to both the farmers and biorefineries. Pre-industrial processing is developed and optimized for the lupin, properties of the different fractions analysed, their advantage for different industrial use evaluated, and a few products developed as an example.

DENDROMASS4EUROPE project - Horizon 2020

Securing Sustainable Dendromass Production with Poplar Plantations in European Rural Areas. The project objective is to establishing sustainable, short-rotation coppice-based regional cropping systems for agricultural dendromass on marginal land that feed into bio-based value chains and create additional job opportunities in rural areas.

BIOREFLY project - FP7

The project aims to 2,000 ton per year industrial scale demonstration of a bio-refinery on lignin-based aviation fuel.
