Boost production, management and sustainable use of biomass for energy purposes with the aim to generate a total of 200 electric MW and 200 thermal MW by 2016

Activities: (2013 - 2016)
PROBIOMASA pursues, during its execution, to secure the establishment of provincial-level bioenergy strategies aligned with national policy regarding energy, agricultural and environmental dimensions. The project will develop the necessary mechanisms at local, provincial and national level to ensure implementation, supervision and monitoring of the production, management and sustainable use of biomass.
