ROKWOOD Project Partner IFAPA (Instituto Andaluz de Investigación y Formación Agraria, Pesquera, Alimentaria y de la Producción Ecológica) will attend EXPOBIOENERGÍA to present the following paper (via poster): "Factors affecting the production and use of short-rotation woody plantations for biomass production in Andalusia: A Delphi analysis".

The Rokwood project is aiming to help improve the market conditions for the increased uptake of woody energy crops grown in SRPs.

The first 6 months of the project has been all about understanding what has gone before with each of the six clusters engaged in a lengthy analysis of the state of play of the SRP sector in their region.

The EURoPEAn ENVIRONMENT AGENCy (EEA) publishes a report on resource efficiency in bionenergy production

"Forest biomass and productive land are limited resources, and part of Europe's 'natural capital'. So it is essential that we consider how we can use existing resources efficiently before we impose additional demands on land for energy production." Hans Bruyninckx, EEA Executive Director

EU fosters innovation for sustainable production and efficient use of wooden biomass

Bremerhaven, March 2013. In the area of renewable energies, biomass is becoming more and more important. In order to answer the growing demand for biomass resources, focus is being placed on Short Rotation Coppice (SRC). This method of plantation describes the cultivation of fast-growing trees within short rotation periods with the goal of producing wood as a renewable energy source.
