The potential and competitiveness of biomass as an energy source in the Central Baltic Sea Region

The aim of the Pure biomass –project is to raise awareness about the technical and economic benefits of the use of different types of biomass in energy production in the Kurzeme region in Latvia and Southwest Finland. The project team will evaluate the biomass potential in the areas and estimate the cost for replacing fossil fuels. There will be also pilot projects about local biomass and their technical-economic aspects.

Pure biomass –project schedule is January 2012 – December 2013.


Efficient production and use of energy are key factors for sustainable economy and welfare.  Local energy sources offer a diverse range of possibilities for the energy production and the areas will have better possibilities to be self-sufficient on energy.
