Brief description: The Biomass-React project aims to establish a Cooperation Group (GC) between public and private, research bodies and companies operating in the forest sector for the local and sustainable supply of biomass to be used in energy production. The context in which the project is placed is that of the forests owned by the Municipality of Asiago, FSC certified and an example of responsible management from an environmental, social and economic point of view.
The Biomass-React aims to create a local vertical supply-chain that mainly uses the by-products of forestry operations from both ordinary uses and the recent windthrow caused by the VAIA storm within the forest property of the Municipality of Asiago. Through the technical contribution of the University of Padua and the external consultancy of experts in the sector the Biomass-React intend to improve and maximize the efficiency of the supply chain and transformation of residual forest biomass with particular attention to transport logistics, storage points and processing processes.
