On 18 and 19 December 2017 Development Agency of the Una-Sana Canton, in cooperation with partnering agency REGEA from Karlovac, held a workshop “Woody biomass-renewable energy source” in Bihać. The workshop was organized and held within EU-funded project “Renew Heat”, which aims to replace traditional wood heating with the biomass heating. Participants of this workshop were representatives of wood industry of the Una-Sana Canton, who had opportunity to learn about innovative heat contracting and good practice examples in Croatia, as well as other current topics such as “Collection and logistic centers for biomass” that do not exist in Bosnia and Herzegovina and “Quality of fuel from solid biomass - standards, control and quality assurance”. Discussion on the topic “Production of woody biomass in BiH – opportunity or difficulty” was held at the end of the workshop when participants reached conclusion that use and production of woody biomass in Una-Sana Canton should be expanded, since it is reach in forests, but relationship between public and private sectors must be improved in order for it to take place.
