The new print issue of BE-Sustainable will be presented on the occasion of the 26th European Biomass Conference and Exhibition in Copenhagen.
BE-Sustainable 2018 focuses on Denmark, a living lab of bioenergy which aims at phasing-out coal power plants completely by the end of 2023.
You may read a collection of “inspirations for innovation” of best practices in the field of advanced biofuels, non-food-competing biomasses aspiring to a sustainable growth and a transition to a low-carbon economy. From securing a stable supply of biomass resources in a sustainable and flexible manner, up to developing local value chains based on marginal lands exploitation and innovative cropping systems until ongoing projects addressing multiple technological challenges: these are the key aspects concerning the future of bioenergy which have been addressed in this print issue. From Brazil to China, from Mediterranean area to Northern Europe, there is the need to push bioenergy and 2nd generation biofuels development forward: ambitious targets, a stable policy (which may be fostered by the current EU Renewable Energy Directive which is under negotiation at present time) and R&I Investments are essential for the sector to deploy its full potential.
