SECURECHAIN will enlarge and strengthen local bioenergy supply chains by mobilising additional, currently unused amounts of biomass and secure supplies from regional sources with proven sustainability. Through secured supplies and gains in efficiency, the project shall leverage additional capacities and outputs of bioenergy available for new investments.
- Mobilise additional amounts and secure existing supplies of solid biomass
- Maximise the share of sustainable bioenergy in the final energy consumption
- Reduce the transaction costs for further market uptake of most efficient systems
The project exploits and disseminates a broadly transferable Sustainable Supply Chain Management (SSCM) practice model for local bioenergy chains that fosters environmentally compatible mobilisation of biomass sources and a proactive promotion of the market through conscious investments into the bioenergy sector. The SSCM and sustainability certification provides critical proof for business models, to convince financiers as well as concerned stakeholders, i.e. energy consumers, regional authorities and nature conservation.
Triggering substantial engagement and investments in local chains, the project fosters a higher level of the model regions’ knowhow, improved international positioning and mutual outreach. SECURECHAIN builds a smart, industry-driven collaboration facilitating the stronger market uptake of sustainable bioenergy, with a high transferability potential of solutions to other regions in Europe.
