The overall goal is to better serve the emerging biorefining industry and to ease the transition to bioeconomy in the Botnia-Atlantica area.
The project will develop methods and business models for forest terminals. The goal is a business centre, BioHub, which delivers the right assortment to the right place at the right price. To increase the value of the forest, future terminals can bark, crush, chip or sort biomass. Raw material can also be pre-treated by e.g. drying and torrefying.
Cross-border cooperation ensures that knowledge and experiences of both countries will be utilised effectively. Results can be adjusted to regional circumstances. This will develop the bioeconomy of the whole Botnia-Atlantica region, including rural areas.
