The Renewable Energy Companies Association (APPA) and the Union for Biomass (group to which the Spanish Agro-food Cooperatives belongs) organized today, February 28, within the framework of the GENERA 2017 fair, a workshop entitled “Biomass in The Circular Economy”. The workshop has emphasized the relevant role that biomass can play as a source of energy for multiple applications and sectors.
Juan Sagarna, responsible for Services, Quality and Innovation of the Spanish Agro-food Cooperatives, participated in this conference explaining the use of biomass in the agricultural sector and, specifically, the development of the AGROinLOG project.
The European project AGROinLOG continues the path established by another project, Sucellog, in which the Spanish Agro-food Cooperatives also participated. This initiative tried to evaluate the possibilities of the cooperatives to become biomass logistics centers, thus contributing to a new line of business and a source of sustainable resources for the development of its activity.
The objective of AGROinLOG is to demonstrate the concept of biomass logistics centers for food and non-food products, evaluating their economic, technical and environmental viability. The AGROinLOG project is based on three agroindustries in the sectors of fodder (Spain), olive oil (Greece) and bioethanol (Sweden), sectors that aim to develop new lines in their facilities and open new markets for biocommodities.
