#GR3 newsletter no1 - Gras to green gas resource?

Energy from landscapes by promoting the use of grass residue as a renewable energy resource.

You are dealing with gras?

You are familiar with it, but you want to learn more about sustainable collection, transport and storage of locally available grass residues?  Support in making investment decision on this matter would be welcome?

You are a biogas and/or (integrated) composting plant operator?

You are interested in assistance for sourcing grass residues, finding out the appropriate mix of inputs and the best way to introduce grass residues into this mix, to make the necessary investments, and to fine tune the operation of the biogas plants accordingly?

You are a constructor of machinery for mowing and biomass handling?

You want to extend your base of customers and you are looking for a broader platform for your innovative product range in mechanization and optimization of collecting, storing and conditioning grass and vegetal residues?

You are a  policy and decision maker working in gras residues related subjects?

You are looking for more first hand input to adopt possible policy changes, that could facilitate the uptake of grass residues as an energy feedstock, as well as tools/strategies that stimulate the creation of jobs in landscape management, and tools/ strategies for preventing land use change in permanent grasslands.

You want  to be informed about the project?

Please see our IEE-project Gras to green gas resource (GR3) Project WEBSITE:

Your commitment as a main stakeholder  will contribute to tackling problems such as the lack in material flow management for grass residues as well as the lack of communication between the stakeholders involved in the various fields along the entire value chain of  grass harvesting and energy related industry.

In order to assure a good knowledge and information transfer workshops for key actors and stakeholders on gras residue utilisation will be organised throughout all participating regions (in Portugal, Italy, Germany, Belgium and Denmark) in spring and summer 2014. Information on the exact date and location will be available in our next newsletter.
