Micro Waste to Energy Business: micro energy to rural enterprise 3.6 (MicrE)
Start date: Dec 31, 2008, End date: Dec 30, 2011 PROJECT  FINISHED 

MicrE will provide a service to develop and promote innovative small scale renewable energy solutions for rural SMEs and local organisations in the Northern Periphery. These solutions will use new and existing technologies which have not been tried in a rural environment before, especially those which generate energy from by-products and waste, and adapt them to suit NPP rural regions. Achievements: The form and content of the forthcoming MicrE Service has been outlined and will be published during year 2011. Pilot installations have taken place in the following partner regions: Northern Ireland, Finland, Ireland and Scotland Several laboratory-scale experiments have been carried out from which several scientific articles are going to be published. Several papers and articles have been published to disseminate the actions of MicrE and promote the MicrE Service, including By-products and Waste to Energy: Technologies -booklet.Products and services:Title: MicrE Service An online and in-person consultancy service that exploits new and already existing renewable energy solutions and technologies, as well as energy generation technology from by-products and waste that can be specifically adapted to rural micro to small and medium-sized enterprises.More information see:, http://www.micre.euTitle: Energy selection tool An assessment tool for assessing the renewable energy production possibilities in a target area/building defined by the user (rural SME’s/enterprises, communities and single households) and that provides comprehensive information on renewable energy production.More information see:, http://www.micre.euTitle: Biomass and Waste-to-Energy Technologies-Guide A web-based guide on biomass and waste-to-energy technologies, installation, safety and troubleshooting of anaerobic digestion, gasification, combustion, pyrolysis and alcohol fermentation for local organisations and entrepreneurs who need information on the feasibility of biomass and waste-to-energy technologies.More information see:, http://www.micre.euTitle: By-products and Waste to Energy: Technologies -Guide A web-based guide on biorefining technologies that can utilize wastes and by-products as feedstock and which are suitable for small-scale decentralized energy production for local organisations and entrepreneurs whose operations develop waste and by-products or who are interested in starting a business in the area of waste and by-products utilisation.More information see:,
