INFRES – Innovative and effective technology and logistics for forest residual biomass supply in the EU

"We keep EU's forest energy promises"

INFRES aimed to accelerate the technological development and open new paths to EU’s renewable targets by producing research based knowledge, technological solutions and service innovations for forest residue feedstock supply. The project aimed at high efficiency and precise deliveries of woody feedstock to heat, power and biorefining industries by:

GTM Biomass

The aim of the project was to analyse the competitiveness of (domestic) forest fuels in the Nordic and Baltic countries in an extended version of the European Forest Sector Model EFI/GTM. The project was within the framework of  EU financed forest energy research project "Wood-en-man " The competitiveness of using forest biomass for fuel in the Nordic and Baltic region-. The project aimed to analyse:

bioE-bioD - Bioenergy and Biodiversity in 2020 and Beyond

Sustainable impact assessment evaluates how different policies, land-use management or alternative scenarios for future economic development affect the sustainability of a sector and provides information for decision makers. BioE-bioD applied the Tool for Sustainability Impact Assessment (ToSIA) to project and evaluate alternative future forest resource use scenarios in Eastern Finland.

BEST - Sustainable Bioenergy Solutions for Tomorrow

Sustainable Bioenergy Solutions for Tomorrow (BEST) project was funded by The Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation (TEKES) and coordinated by two of the six Strategic Centers for science, technology and innovation in Finland: Finnish Bioeconomy Cluster (FIBIC) and  Cluster for  Energy and Environment (CLEEN). This cross-boundary program aimed at building a solid common understanding of the future bioenergy business opportunities as well as the necessary know-how and capabilities for seizing them.
