The study addressed the use of modern forestry technologies such as CTL machines, harvester concepts for thinning operations and technologies relevant for energy wood production. The study also included an analysis of supply/production chains in Poland as an integral part of energy development projections both at the regional and national levels in Eastern Europe.
"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:
The aim of the project was to generate knowledge on forest industries and wood use cycles as an integral part of the national energy system, and to develop sustainable solutions for the utilisation of forest bioenergy and for the mitigation of climate change.
The objective of this project was to give information on how to take into account CO2 sequestrated in the forest in calculation of carbon footprint of forest products. This information will help the industry sector's Research and Development to optimize the use of biomass proactively in terms of EU's climate change policy. The project also increased knowledge on fiber based product's carbon economy through several case studies that furthermore give scientifically based results to be used in environmental communication to the authorities and customers.
