Final Report - BIOCARD (Global Process To Improve Cynara cardunculus Exploitation for Energy Applications)

Project ID: 19829
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV


The use of biomass as a renewable energy source is of increasing interest across Europe. However, the Mediterranean climate sets limitations in its application, mainly due to water scarcity. The EU-funded BIOCARD project aimed to demonstrate the technical and economical feasibility of a global process for Cynara crop exploitation for energy applications, so as to address biomass exploitation in the Mediterranean areas.

This final activity report refers to the project objectives and major achievements, analyses the various components of the proposed technology and presents the executed work structure and methodology. It also highlights issues that require further investigation in order to optimise the proposed solution and closes with a thorough presentation of the various dissemination activities.
