GOTECFOR is an EIP-AGRI operational group that contributes to the bioeconomy by seeking to optimise the value chain of forest biomass, as a fuel for heating.
Projects & Practice
An example of an initiative promoting energy efficiency that addresses climate change through targeted actions at grassroots level.
A regional cooperative chain for biomass was established to respond to the increasing demand for woodchip.
LEADER support was used to exploit the potential of using large quantities of waste wood from landscape management as a renewable energy source.
In a rural area without public sewage system, a LEADER project helped the local population to get familiar with the new environmental standards, legislation and requirements on wastewater treatment. It also enabled them to make informed decisions on which wastewater treatment technology to use.
