Successful conference in Italy

On November 14th, 2014, a conference titled "Wood, energy, territory, the actions of the PROFORBIOMED project to support local value chains", organised within the EU project PROFORBIOMED, together with Lombardy Environment Foundation (FLA) and the Mountain Community, was held in Barzio (LC), the headquarters of the Mountain Community of the Valsassina Valvarrone Val D'Esino Riviera.

The conference was aimed at promoting the creation of a network of stakeholders that, for different reasons, are involved in the use of wood from forests for energy purposes.

Throughout the day the development of bioenergy supply chains was discussed, and good examples and success storied were presented.

During the conference, the 27 minutes long video documentary "Forest, Wood, Energy", produced by ISPRA and FLA, was presented to the audience.
