Last updated: 10 December 2014

CIPE (Interministerial Committee for Economic Planning) resolution of 15 February 2000, also known as the Biomass Fuels National Plan (PROBIO) aims to promote the deployment of biomass to replace fossil fuels through incentive systems. This is projected to affect mainly the agricultural, transport and energy sectors. It represents the first operative tool of the two CIPE resolutions "National Programme for the Valorisation of Agricultural and Forestry Biomass (PNVBAF)" and the "National Programme for the Energy Valorisation of Biomass (PNERB)", which set goals for the reduction of greenhouse gases (3-4% by 2010/12), the production of renewable energy from agro-forestry products and by-products, the development of ecocompatible agricultural methods and increased use of energy crops.
