Biochar and green charcoal derived from biomass residues can significantly contribute to reducing the energy dependency of the Alpine region, which is still increasing, as well as its vulnerability to climate change and loss of biodiversity.
The Alps4GreenC project contributes to the conditions for energy self-sufficiency and climate protection in the region by establishing the foundations for transnational utilization of biomass residues.
The project is financed trough the INTERREG Alpine Space initative.
Through policy recommendations and green carbon pilot production, the project explores biomass conversion opportunities and proposes transnational value chains based on biochar. This first transnational collaboration for the establishment of a biochar production value chain will enable the identification and upgrading of appropriate biomass conversion technologies and the full realization of the transition to green, post-carbon approaches.
