Dinner Debate on Mobilising Pruning Residues to Expand Europe's Biomass Market

Results and Recommendations of the EuroPruning project

This event will take the form of a Dinner Debate in the European Parliament on, 'Mobilising pruning residues to expand Europe's biomass market', hosted by Czesław Adam Siekierski MEP, Chair of the European Parliament's Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development.

The Dinner Debate will present the main results of the FP7-funded EuroPruning project and make recommendations on how to support the use of agricultural residues to increase sustainable bioenergy use in Europe. The event will provide an excellent opportunity to debate the sustainable expansion of the European biomass market.

The EuroPruning project has developed new machinery and logistics tools for the harvesting and collection of wood prunings, demonstrated new value chains in three EU regions, and developed new recommendations for storage, soil maintenance and business development for positive socio-economic and environmental impacts.
