Title: Ensuring the supply of wood for energy, Creation of ABSRA (Approvisionnement Biomasse Sécurisé Rhône-Alpes)
Author: Petit, M.; Marchaison, P.; Blanc, F.
Abstract: SAS ABSRA, acronym for (Approvisionnement Biomasse Sécurisé Rhône-Alpes) is a region-wide grouping of suppliers of chip wood aiming to ensure the supply of biomass for large-scale projects and assemble major sources of supply.The company, founded as a result of action by FIBOIS Ardèche Drôme (the wood sector inter-professional organisation in these two French départements), presently supplies 40,000 T of wood for energy composed of a wide range of biomass, typed by particle size and moisture levels, with a potential output of 100,000 T within five years. ABSRA is made up of family companies, some working in the region for several generations, and already supplies various projects (industries, heating utilities, paper producers...). ABSRA has acquired expertise, unique in the region, in the production and supply of ready-to-use biomass. Furthermore, the geographical spread of the partner companies enables ABSRA to diversify its sources of supply and optimise the stream of biomass. The certainty of a reliable supply for a project depends on “ensuring uninterrupted supply”. This is made possible by ABSRA’s shareholder make-up.
