S2Biom - delivery of sustainable supply of non-food biomass to support a resource-efficient Bioeconomy in Europe: Outcomes and outlook for the future

Contributed by: ETA-Florence Renewable Energies

From 2016-06-09 to 2016-06-09, Netherlands
The workshop will present the first results of this FP7-funded project. It supports the sustainable delivery of non-food biomass feedstock at local, regional and pan-European level through developing strategies and roadmaps that will be informed by a “computerised and easy to use” toolset with updated harmonised datasets at local, regional, national and pan-European level for EU28, Western Balkans, Ukraine, Moldova and Turkey.

The project has built-up a concise knowledge base both for the sustainable supply and logistics of non-food biomass (quantities, costs, technological pathway options for 2020 and beyond), as well as for the development of technology and market strategies to support the development of a “resource efficient” bioeconomy for Europe.

The research work covers the whole biomass delivery chain from primary biomass to end-use of non-food products, including logistics, pre-treatment and conversion technologies. Activities are implemented in three individual but strongly interrelated Themes. Theme 1 covers the methodological approaches to build up a concise knowledge base for the efficient resource mobilisation and the assessment of resource efficient biomass value chains. Theme 2 uses the findings from Theme 1 and developed a vision, strategies and a R&D roadmap for the sustainable delivery of non-food biomass feedstocks at the different regional levels. Theme 3 validates the findings from Theme 1 and 2 and ensures the project outreach, with selected case studies at different scales of biomass supply chains applications.
