Welcome to BioenNW: supporting businesses and organisations in North West Europe.

Bioenergy is a rapidly growing market driven by government policies promoting the use of low carbon energy and waste recycling. Targets to increase the security of energy supply and reduce greenhouse gas emissions have been set for all European Union member states to ensure the EU reaches a 20% share of renewable energy by 2020. Bioenergy technologies are being developed which offer significant energy efficiency and profit gains but support is needed to develop these innovations into a viable, sustainable energy source.

The BioenNW project supports organisations throughout North West Europe to explore the opportunities this growing bioenergy market offers and to realise their own local small-scale bioenergy schemes.

BioenNW has four main objectives:

  • To provide information and support to organisations through the creation of a Bioenergy Support Centre network
  • To create a decision support scheme to determine whether a bioenergy venture is feasible
  • To test a range of potential feedstocks
  • To create five local small-scale bioenergy installations ready for an investor to develop.

BioenNW will help make bioenergy initiatives a reality by demonstrating a truly green and sustainable energy solution for organisations and communities throughout North West Europe.

Advanced Services Global Forum

A one-off event allowing business leaders and senior executives to be guided by a world-class academic research team in how to create and apply service-led business models to their companies will be hosted by Aston University on Tuesday 26th April. The Advanced Services Global Forum, to be held at Aston Business School, is specially tailored for business leaders who are designing an advanced services strategy. This hands-on event includes a 3 hour workshop session on designing a services-led customer value proposition and developing a strategy to implement this. Each attendee will devise an offering they can take back to their business for immediate implementation. The focus of the offering is on helping the customer to improve their competitiveness rather than just engaging in a single transaction through the sale of a physical product. Research by Aston Business School has shown that this kind of business model can help companies to achieve annual growth of 5-10%. For further details including how to register click here.

The Waste Biorefinery Platform: The Future of AD in the UK

The amount of organic waste treated by anaerobic digestion has doubled since 2009 with around 11 million wet tonnes treated annually. However there are a number of threats to the continued expansion of this technology, with shrinking gate fees for raw material, increased costs for digestate recycling and uncertainty as to the long term sustainability of the land recycling route. This gives scrope for further research and development into harnessing the resource more effectively.

Developing the bioeconomy throughout Europe

In the future, the world will experience increased competition for natural resources. At the same time, the growing global population will require a safe and secure food supply. With climate change affecting primary production systems, such as agriculture, forestry and fisheries, a transition is needed towards the optimal use of renewable biological resources.

To maintain competitiveness, Europe will need to ensure sufficient supplies of raw materials, energy and industrial products by not relying on fossil fuels – biological resources can be utilised instead.

The bioeconomy – the sustainable production of renewable resources from land, fisheries and aquaculture environments and their conversion into food, feed, biobased products and bioenergy – offers an opportunity to the challenges ahead and still achieve economic growth. Europe can make the transition to a more resource efficient society that relies more strongly on renewable biological resources to satisfy consumers’ needs, industry demand and tackle climate change.

Estimated to be worth over €2 trillion, providing 20 million jobs and accounting for 9 % of total employment in the EU, the bioeconomy is set to build a more competitive, innovative and prosperous Europe and bioenergy has an important role to play.

To see what the developing European bioeconomy means for businesses and organisations, the European Bioenergy Research Institute (EBRI) at Aston University, in partnership with Climate KIC, is organising a two day event to be held in Birmingham on 2nd and 3rd October.

Hear about the latest developments from speakers from the UK, Belgium, France, Germany and the Netherlands.

The event will give you an understanding of:

  • Fundamentals of bioenergy
  • Conventional and emerging bioenergy technologies
  • Innovations throughout Europe
  • Bioenergy markets
  • Biomass feedstocks
  • Bioenergy project development & financing

La biomasse-énergie a-t-elle un avenir sur Bruxelles?

Selon Eurostat, en 2011, 13 % des besoins énergétiques de l’Union Européenne ont été couverts par des sources d’énergie renouvelables. La biomasse représente à elle seule un peu plus de 8 % de ces besoins. On est très loin du compte à Bruxelles qui par sa structure urbaine dense, n’a jamais cherché à favoriser ce type d’énergie. Cependant les technologies évoluent et il est utile de refaire le point sur le potentiel et les limites liés à l’utilisation de la biomasse en ville. Le réseau Brussels GreenTech et le cluster Tweed vous invitent à partager ces informations le 23 mai 2014 à 9h chez impulse.brussels.

European Advanced Biofuels Congress 2012

A conference like no other: A unique, high-level, interactive debate between the key parties that will drive the European advanced bioeconomy.

The European Union has as a priority aim, to build up a bio-based economy by 2020. Yet, building a European advanced biofuel industry remains extremely challenging and unless Europe is proactive, a situation of exporting fuel expertise and then importing the resultant fuel will become the norm for years to come.

The will is there. The need is present. The expertise exists. What is needed is the co-ordination.
