The BioPAD team is off to Joensuu in Finland to attend the Final Conference for BioPAD and REMOTE on Thursday 11th of September. We are excited to hear about the results and outcomes of these two NPP projects. The conference has been organised around four interesting sessions:
- Overcoming barriers-real world bioenergy development
- Policy package
- Creating value within the Supply Chain
- Opportunities: sustainable energy in the Northern Periphery
