Future Prospects of Sustainable Biomass in the Context of the European Green Deal

Presenters will include:

This webinar will examine the merits of sustainable biomass as a renewable energy source for Europe. Academics, industry experts, and policymakers will exchange views on how biomass can play role in achieving the EU’s renewable energy targets while preventing deforestation or degradation of habitats or loss of biodiversity.

 

The panel will also discuss what differentiates “good” biomass from “bad” biomass and what role EU sustainability frameworks can play. Experts will also debate the importance of certification schemes for building trust among citizens and the wider public.
