SecureChain - Small and medium enterprises securing future-proof bioenergy chains
Secure Chain's objective was to promote a Sustainable Supply Chain Management practice that meets high environmental, quality and financial viability standards, tailored for local biomass suppliers, energy producers and the financial sector. In the process, the entire bioenergy chain was considered, and sustainability and financing were an integral part of the set-up. The specific objectives comprised, a) integration and optimization of local supply chains, b) high efficiency and low impact gain, c) supply sustainability, d) leveraging investments in bioenergy, and, e) implementation of future-proof bioenergy chains. SecureChain relied heavily on tested digital practices deminstrating organisational setups for information flows, biomass mobilisation and logistics, especially for a) the optimization of collaborative networks and joint implementation plans of local supply chains, and b) the application of risk assessment tools for the analysis of supply chains’ market opportunities, financing schemes and investor requirements.
