Small and medium enterprises securing future-proof bioenergy chains

SecureChain was a Horizon 2020 project co-financed by the European Commission from 2015 to 2018, which focused on promoting market uptake of bioenergy in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The main objective was to promote a Sustainable Supply Chain Management practice that meets highest environmental quality and financial viability standards and targets local biomass suppliers, energy producers and financial sector players. Unique features of the project were that the entire bioenergy chain was considered, and sustainability and financing were an integral part of the project set-up.
