Strategic tools towards a sustainable use of biomass for low carbon domestic heating

BB-Clean project will develop 8 project outputs that will focus on:   

  • awareness raising of citizens and local administrators on the potential impact of domestic                                               biomass burning focusing on air quality, human health and climate change                                                                                            
  • development of technological, informative, economic and social tools to foster                                                                   sustainable domestic biomass combustion     


  • development of low carbon policies that could represent harmonized solutions at                                                         transnational level for a sustainable use of biomass in domestic heating in the Alpine Region      


Output O.T1.1 - Biomass chain knowledge platform

The biomass chain knowledge platform is intended to be information base for the development of all other project activities and as an awareness raising tool for public and private stakeholders and will contribute to better linking between the different actors involved in the biomass chain. The platform is a comprehensive repository of knowledge composed by six different documents touching all topics related to the biomass chain: from the biomass production, with a special focus on local availability and main market characteristics in project pilot areas, to the biomass burning carbon emissions in domestic heating, with particular regards to their impact on air quality in Alpine regions.


Output O.T2.1 - Crowdsourcing platforms with participants from various regions and countries

The goal of innovative crowdsourcing approach is to facilitate an unique way to involve citizens and local stakeholders at different levels to discuss their challenges and to be aware of the potential effect of biomass burning in their regions. A crowdsourcing platform gives various stakeholders, especially citizens and local administrators the possibility to share their direct experience, discuss challenges, find solutions and attract interest on the critical aspects of biomass burning for domestic heating.
