Polish Matchmaking Event

The University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn (Poland) held their business consultations-matchmaking meeting on 16 June 2021. The online event “Cross-border promotion of guidelines for the implementation of good practices in the development of a circular bioeconomy at the local level among public authorities” was aimed at business enterprises (biomass producers and processing companies, incl. bioenergy companies, as well as other value chain players, such as providers of specialised equipment, logistics, financing or consulting services) and state / municipality owned enterprises (waste management or other utility companies). 44 participates actively took part, exchanging ideas and learning more about the bioeconomy and the BalticBiomass4Value project.

During the first part of the workshop the general assumptions of the BalticBiomass4Value project were presented. Then, general assumptions about territorial cooperation in the areas of the Baltic Sea region and Central Europe for 2021-2027 were presented. In addition, national and EU legal aspects in the field of bioeconomy were presented. A discussion was then conducted on the legal aspects in the field of bioeconomy and future possibilities of cooperation in this area.In the second part of the workshop business models related to bioenergy in the Baltic Sea Region were presented. In addition, analysis of the use of local biomass sources for heating public buildings as well as analysis and modelling of the spread of pollutants from heating installations were presented. Then, a discussion panel was held, which indicated the possibilities of using the bioeconomy in the local public sector.

The following conclusions can be drawn from the discussions:

  • The legal regulations in Poland in the field of bioeconomy are incomplete and inconsistent
  • Some of the presented business models already exist in Poland
  • The analysis of the use of local biomass sources for heating public buildings as well as analysis and modelling of the spread of pollutants from heating installations could be an inspiration to undertake such activities, especially in local communities
  • There is a necessity to organise study trips and meetings for local authorities, which should create new directions of development in specific companies presenting good practices in the field of renewable energy sources and bioeconomy
  • There is a need to raise awareness of the importance of bioenergy  amongst the local community
