The overall aim of ENERBIOSCRUB project ("Sustainable management of shrubs formations for energy purposes") is to contribute, as part of the overall objectives of LIFE+ Environmental Policy and Governance, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) to mitigate the effects related to climate change, through the demonstration and deployment of technologies that contribute to substantially reduce GHG emissions.
The proposed project aims the achievement of the EU environmental policy targets by promoting the management of marginal scrub forests by obtaining solid biofuels and thereby be able to achieve community objectives in environmental matters: climate change, forest management and renewable energy. It is intended to reduce the risk of forest fires using the sustainable energy use of highly flammable forests. Innovative methods of management and harvesting of forest that are not currently carried out for not being sufficiently well-known and not be demonstrated in Southern Europe will be used. We have selected four areas of activity in the regions of Castile-Leon and Galicia in which implement the most innovative and environmentally friendly harvesting systems of scrub biomass and which will serve as a reference for the spread of the technology and the existing proven methods in other areas.
