Abstract: In recent years the global energy crisis, though officially unrecognized, has made its presence increasingly felt, especially by worsening the conflict taking place at global or regional level. Not incidentally, the conflict zones are exactly those with important fossil energy resources. For example, the Black Sea region and the so-called “Extended Black Sea Region”. The problem of access to the fossil resources in this region has made the American and Russian interests clash in a more brutal manner than before, the regional and global consequences of this phenomenon being still unpredictable, to a certain extent. Against this background of insecurity, it becomes more important to find easily applicable technological solutions which would make it possible to satisfy the global or regional energy security needs without relying on the traditional fossil resources. One such approach is the processing and use of “dead plant” materials, including some waste products from urban areas, in order to turn them into fuel.

Keywords: global security environment, energetic security, forest resources.
