Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientific


The AFB-net brings together industry representatives from 14 European Union countries in a 'whole chain' approach to stimulate the commercial and industrial exploitation of biomass energy in Europe. Established in January 1995, the network is managed by VTT Energy (as of 1999) and ETSU (1995-1998) and is supported by the European Commission underits ALTENER Programme.AFB-net participants have led and organised a wide range of activities e.g. workshops, study tours, mini-training seminars, reflecting the disparate needs and priorities of industry at the national, regional and EU level. Several national and EU wide bioenergy publications, case plant factsheets, evaluation reports, guidebooks and training manuals have been prepared. For additional information on AFB-net see URL
