Aim of the joint call The BESTF joint call will support bioenergy projects in which credible processes and technologies for the production of bioenergy demonstrated. Projects may also take a multi-product or biorefinery approach, but the major focus must be energy production. The energy produced can be for electricity, direct heating, or transport fuels.
