Workshop on the guidance on cascading use of woody biomass

This workshop aims to showcase existing practices in the resource-efficient and sustainable use of woody biomass. It should also identify new opportunities, chances for cooperation and challenges along the value chain.

Event date: 13/04/2018
Location: Conference Centre Albert Borschette (CCAB), Rue Froissart 36, 1040 Brussels
Organiser: European Commission

Materials and products made from woody biomass play an essential role in our daily lives. In many EU countries, their production is a cornerstone of the economy.

In the transition to a low-carbon, circular economy, woody biomass may also be key, if used resource-efficiently and sustainably: by increased valorisation and technological efficiency as well as better reuse and recycling.

The Commission committed to promoting the efficient use of bio-based resources in the EU action plan for the circular economy. This includes non-binding guidance on the cascading use of biomass by sharing good practices.
