Event description:

The Impact of Energy Crops Workshop was organized within the LogistEC project which aims to develop new or improved technologies of the biomass logistics chains.

This workshop aimed at raising the awareness of major NGOs on lignocellulosic crops and summarizing their expectations, so that their recommendations may be taken into account when implementing these crops.

A list of recommended actions has been established on how to integrate environmental requirements when developing energy crops projects . You can find this list HERE.
