Within the BE-Rural project, one focus will be on the energy conversion of biomass materials generated on agricultural fields or farms (field based residues), as well as those generated during the processing of agricultural products (process-based residues). Currently, new economic zones are emerging, and the municipalities are committed to a common economic development.
National and regional bioeconomy strategies
North Macedonia and Strumica have not yet published bioeconomy strategies. However, existing local strategies for economic development and energy efficiency programmes provide a solid base for developing future tailor-made bioeconomy strategies.
