This month, our first 5 small-scale projects of the period 2021-2027 are starting! During September we would like to introduce these exciting new projects, starting with Alps4GreenC!
The energy dependency of the Alpine region further increases its vulnerability to climate change and the loss of biodiversity. Biochar and green carbon from biomass residues can make a significant contribution to reduce this dependency. The project Alps4GreenC contributes to the conditions for energy sufficiency and climate protection of the region by setting the scene for a transnational utilisation of biomass residues. Through policy recommendations and the pilot production of green carbon, the project investigates the opportunities for biomass conversion and proposes transnational biochar-based value chains. This first transnational collaboration for the establishment of biochar-production value chain will enable to identify and upgrade the appropriate technologies for biomass conversion and to fully realise the shift to green, post-carbon approaches.
