The importance of biomass as part of a strong and competitive low carbon economy is highlighted in a major new campaign initiative sponsored by the European Biomass Association AEBIOM, of which GDF SUEZ is a member, represented by Laborelec.

The Biomass Counts campaign argues that biomass will continue to be a vital component of our energy mix into the medium and long term. It turns the spotlight on what is needed to assure the continued growth of the bioenergy sector.

Among other measures the initiative calls for an EU action plan for the heating and cooling sector, with an agreed strategy for legally binding sustainability criteria. For more information, please visit
