On April 13th and 14th, the fifth meeting of the Steering Committee of the BIORES Project - Sustainable Regional Supply Chains for Woody Bioenergy was held, organized by the Regional Energy Agency of Northwest Croatia.
The main topics of the meeting, in addition to administration of the project i.e. technical and financial reporting, were the status of work packages WP4, WP5, WP6 and WP7. The following activities on feasibility study for biomass logistic centers in defined locations were particularly in focus.
At the same time, a workshop was held, organized by CARMEN, in the framework of the work package WP7 on informing the consumers of biomass, which was attended by the representatives of the organizations, that are developing specific logistic centers in Serbia, Croatia and Bulgaria, together with the partners in the BIORES project.
The next meeting of the SC will take place at the end of September in Velenje, Slovenia.
On April 11th, as a visiting lecturer on the course about Organization and Management in forestry, the president of the National Biomass Association SERBIO and the BIORES Project Manager, Vojislav Milijić, had the honor of to present the National Biomass Association SERBIO and the BIORES project to the graduates of the Faculty of Forestry in Belgrade. In addition, the interested students are invited to visit the BIORES training: Sustainable regional supply chains for woody bioenergy on the RENEXPO Western Balkans Fair 2016.
BioRES has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon2020 Research and Innovation Program under grant agreement No645994, and aims to establish biomass logistic centers in Serbia, Bulgaria and Croatia.
This video describes the innovative concept of logistic and trade centers for the development of the use of biomass as a renewable and ecological source of energy in households.

Training for the interested participants on supply chains for woody bioenergy
BIORES develops the capacity of the market participants in the local supply chains and provides training for trainers for Biomass Logistic and Trade Centers (BLTC), related to business skills and quality control of woody bioenergy and sustainable forest management.
Within the project there is a study tour and training of trainers (30.11.-4.12.2015) with the aim of visiting BLTC's that represent good practice in Slovenia, Austria and southern Germany, with a workshop related to the transfer of knowledge and technology.
BIORES Training manual provides orientation for the target groups of the project, which are included in the chain of value creation related to woody bioenergy: trainers for woody bioenergy, the potential operators of new biomass logistic and trade centers, private forest owners, consultants for project development , handlers of small power stations and power plants, traders and processors of wood.
The Training manual contains three training modules:
1) Analysis of local market potential (supply and demand) with didactic approaches and motivation
2) Development and implementation of a business model BLTC
3) Quality assurance and verification requirement of sustainability including the EU regulation on wood
The manual was prepared in English and translated into national languages of the countries where the BIORES project is implemented: Bulgaria, Croatia and Serbia.

Between November 29th and December 4th a study tour was held, combined with training of trainers and the Steering Committee of the project.
Participants of the study tour were representatives of organizations and companies interested in forming a Biomass logistic and trade centers in Serbia, Croatia and Bulgaria. The aim of the trip was to point out the logistic centers in Slovenia, Austria and Germany. A tour of the following logistic centers is organized: Biomass doo, Nazarje, Slovenia; Leoben, Niklasdorf, Austria; Achental, Grassau, Germany; and Algau, Riderau, Germany. In addition to logistic centers, participants had the opportunity to visit Graz and Munich, the last day of a trip a there was a workshop organized at the headquarters of GIZ in Bavaria Feldafing.
In addition to the study trip there war a training included for 12 future trainers, that will, within the activities of the BioRes project, use their acquired knowledge in the upcoming period for practical trainings on managing supply chains for woody bioenery in Serbia, Coatia and Bulgaria.
As part of the trip to Graz on November 30th and 01December 1st the fourth Steering Committee of the project was held. The main topics of the meeting were further activities within the work package 4, 5 and 6. The locations for the development of Biomass logistic centers were defined as well as methods of making feasibility studies for the respective locations. There are definite recommendations for a sustainable supply of woody bioenergy of standardized quality and basic concept of training for managing supply chains for woody bioenergy.
The next meeting of the Steering Committee of the project will take place in April in Zagreb.
On November 12th 2015 a workshop was held in Priboj: „Sustainable use of biomass and Biomass Logistic Centers“, organized within the project „Sustainable ragional supply chains for woody bioenergy“ BioRes. The objective of the workshop was to gather in one place the relevant entities interested in the processing and use of biomass from the environment of Priboj and Nova Varos, to discuss the establishment and development of the chain of energy supply based on biomass through the establishment of Biomass logistic and trade centers (BLTC), based on examples of good practice and cooperation with European partners. Special attention during the workshop was given to the legal and technical frameworks concerning the establishment of biomass logistic centers. BIORES project supports the establishment of such centers in Serbia, Croatia and Bulgaria.
On Oktober 26th 2015 a workshop „Sustainable use of biomass and Biomass Logistic Centres“ was held in Zrenjanin, within the project „Sustainable Regional Supply Chains for woody bioenergy“ BioRes. The objective of the workshop was to gather in one place the relevant entities interested in production of woody biomass from Banat, to discuss the establishment and development of the chain of energy supply based on biomass through the establishment of Biomass logistic and trade centers (BLTC), based on examples of good practice and cooperation with European partners. Special attention during the workshop was given to the potentials for establishment of energy plantations, wich were presented by the representatives of the company Rebina Agrar. BIORES project supports the establishment of such centers in Serbia, Croatia and Bulgaria.
