4th ForBioEnergy training – Challenges in the formulation of strategies for the efficient wood biomass use

On Thursday, 21 of June 2018, the 4th training organized in the frame of ForBioEnergy project was held in the premises of Slovenian Forest Service, Ljubljana, Slovenia. The training was focused on the following topics:

• Identification of essential barriers that inhibit the effective wood biomass use
• Review of the effectiveness of instruments to promote the effective use of wood biomass
• Finding ways to achieve greater social acceptability of the wood biomass use

ForBioEnergy project was presented to all participants. We talked about the barriers we are facing in the field of wood production in protected areas. Biomass potentials from managed forest and the Action plan for a new regulatory framework and permit route were also presented. During an active group work, we gave a critical opinion on the position of wood biomass use in Slovenia and discussed the proposed potential solutions for even more efficient use of wood biomass.

The training was attended by representatives of Slovenian Forestry Institute, Slovenian Forest Service, The Chamber of Agriculture and Forestry of Slovenia, Ministry of Economic development and Technology, Forestry high school, Ministry of Infrastructure, University of Ljubljana – Biotechnical faculty, Biomasa d.o.o, Gaj Les d.o.o, Zavita, RDA Green Karst doo, Linka d.o.o.
