Mechanisms for sustainability and valuation of the solid biomass market in the space of the SUDOE

The SUDOE (Spain, south of France and Portugal) constitutes a proper biomass market with particular characteristics that him differ from the rest of Europe and where there happens a series of barriers that have prevented its development:  

  • Safety of the supply is not guaranteed.
  • Availability and quality of the information about market behavior  is precarial.
  • The particular characteristics of the SUDOE biomass make inefficient the use of more advanced technologies from other parts of Europe, and make difficult the application of regulations that regulate and control the quality and the sustainability of the energy model.


At European level, measures are taken to confront these problems. Nevertheless, these have been influenced by more developed markets of the center - north of Europe, and do not take into consideration the peculiarities of biomass from SUDOE. Also, they do not manage to include the whole productive process of the biofuel because they consider only the final product. To answer to this problems, BIOMASUD will design and introduce mechanisms of support that they help to the development of a sustainable market of the solid biomass:  

  • Minimal sustainability requests will be implemented in the whole chain of value of the biofuels.
  • There will be implemented a system that audits and certifies the fulfillment of these requisites.
  • A traceability system will be implemented that allows to manage the resources from a global perspective


Thus BIOMASUD chases the last target to contribute to the sustainability of the energy model based on biomass to the conservation of the natural environment of the space SUDOE, encouraging the efficiency and sustainability in the processes. This way, BIOMASUD will increase the competitiveness of the organizations that act on the market. This will be translated in the creation of employment, economic growth of the regions, energy autonomy for the SUDOE and decrease of the energy cost for the consumers.   The project is financed by the funds FEDER from EU and the whole of the investment during 30 months of execution of the project is 972.704,96 €
