The bioeconomy in northern Sweden and Finland will be based on forest biomass. To support the traditional and new industries, our research shows increased need for terminals. This is to make the supply chain more profitable and more assortments available. A clear business plan is the most important step for a profitable terminal. We have investigated where the raw material is, where and how a terminal can be established and how to run it. Not forgetting how to preserve the raw material quality.
We now invite you to come and listen to our results.
