Organisation for promotion

Biomasse Normandie was created in partnership with the Chamber of Agriculture of Normandy, ADEME, the Regional Council and other local authorities


Biomasse Normandie was created in partnership with the Chamber of Agriculture of Normandy, ADEME, the Regional Council and other local authorities. This association promotes renewable energy resources, working mainly in two areas : wood-fuel, at the regional, national and European levels, and the treatment of district, agro-industry and agriculture moist organic waste.

Over the last ten years, it has gained competence in collecting, and computerising information about wood-fuel in Europe in the framework of the THERMIE programme, collaborating with several partners : ADEME, ZREU, the Styrian Chamber of Agriculture and Forestry and VTT Processes. Supported by European and national assistance, the site www.biomasse-normandie.org offers now four Internet databases, three of them specifically for the area of wood-fuel :

- Wood-fuel for heating systems – European Catalogue 2001 (this English catalogue), Thermie programme ;

- 1 000 keywords for wood-fuel (a guide) ;

- Wood fuel operators in France (a catalogue).



Wood-fuel expertise

- Co-ordination of the « Wood-fuel and local development » plan in Normandy, since 1994 (creation of a regional wood supplier society, searching for areas, advice to local authorities…).
