Wood and CO2

Noé21 organizes seminars in collaboration with continuing education “Forest and Landscape” (www.fowala.ch) with the aim of supporting the transfer of knowledge in the field of the forest and of its management.

Wood energy has an important role to play in Switzerland and should increase its influence in the field of heating, especially district heating networks. In addition new ways of wood utilization are possible thanks to new technology development.
