Croatia does not use agro residues (pruning or uprooted materials). That was a great opportunity to present possible ways of using biomass and to show good examples and launched value chains. Croatia is big source of energy from biomass but in the same time it is country where new initiative have to be established through engaging different value chain actors. It is good to present good examples from other OC.
