This report covers the possibilities of using biomass for energetic purposes, specifically for electric production and biofuels on the basis of the present technology situation. In particular, the report examines the opportunity to integrate various biomass sources and the different systems of conversion both within of each sector (from agriculture through to industrial conversion) and between different sectors (electricity, ethanol, biodiesel). To consider the relevance of biomass today, the real costs of fossil fuel including social and environmental costs have been also evaluated.
