About CZ Biom

CZ Biom is a non-governmental organization and professional association supporting the development of bioenergy in the Czech Republic. The Czech Biomass Association (CZ Biom) is the Czech Republic’s largest professional organisation engaged in the issue of utilization of biodegradable waste and using biomass in all its forms as an energy source.  Established in 1994, the association currently represents approximately 160 companies and members. Czech Biomass Association is a full member of AEBIOM.

CZ Biom is active as the lead partner of individual work packages in the areas of  research and development and dissemination projects at the national and European level. Every year the association is a partner of several projects.

Currently, Czech Biomass Association is a partner of the greenGain project which is focused on energy utilisation of biomass from landscape conservation and maintenance work. We are open to new potential partnerships within the new European framework programme for research and innovation Horizon 2020.

Horizon 2020 is the financial instrument implementing the Innovation Union, a Europe 2020 flagship initiative aimed at securing Europe’s global competitiveness. Running from 2014 to 2020 with a budget of just over €70 billion, the EU’s new programme for research and innovation is part of the drive to create new growth and jobs in Europe. Horizon 2020 joins past programmes Intelligent Energy Europe, Central Europe and 7th Framework Programme and brings them all together.
