About AgroBioHeat

Project AgroBioHeat “Promoting the penetration of agrobiomass heating solutions in European rural areas” aims to produce a mass deployment of improved and market-ready agrobiomass heating solutions in Europe. Agrobiomass is a large, underexploited, and indigenous resource, which can support the achievement of the European Energy and Climate targets while promoting rural development and circular economy.

The project received financing from the Horizon 2020 EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation under Grant Agreement No 818369

Denmark is a world leader in the production of energy from straw through the implementation of a targeted energy policy. In addition, today Denmark is a demonstration site, where the leading manufacturers of equipment operating on agrobiomass are concentrated, as well as a large number of facilities with a variety of technological solutions and parameters.
