THE DANUBE – ADDED VALUE OF THE BIOMASS: Invitation to the workshop in Vukovar, Croatia (Feb 5, 2019)

Dear Sir/Madam,

A large amount of biomass is available along the Danube with the potential to improve energy security and foster sustainable energy production. Therefore, an increased use of Danube logistics can help to reduce emissions, to establish a low-carbon transport system and to improve the environment performance along the entire bioenergy value chains.

The potentials for the use of Danube logistics services for the bioenergy sector will be discussed at the workshop that will be held on February 5, 2019 in Vukovar (Croatia), Hotel Lav (J.J. Strossmayera), starting at 11.00 am.

The organizer is Port Authority Vukovar with a support of the Croatian Wood Cluster. The workshop is part of the European project Energy Barge worth 2,3 mil EUR that aims to increase transportation along the Danube according to EU Danube Region Strategy’s objective.
