Fostering Sustainable Feedstock Production for Advanced Biofuels on underutilised land in Europe

Deliverables

Feasibility Study Italy - Technical and economic feasibility

Assessment of techno-economic challenges for the identification and implementation of promising use options for the produced biomass in the Italian case.

FORBIO website

Development, deployment and maintenance of the project website hosting information on the project’s activities, achievements and outputs.

Feasibility Study Germany - Technical and economic feasibility

Assessment of techno-economic challenges for the identification and implementation of promising use options for the produced biomass in the German case.

Report on the design of the sustainability indicator set

The indicators and their sub-components will be screened. Secondly, the methodology of each relevant indicator will be adapted to describe the parameters of interest in the context of the case study sites. This methodology will be summarized in the form of an electronic report on the design of the group sustainability indicators set to be used under FORBIO and in similar projects in the EU

Kick-off meeting report

Based on the minutes of the kick-off meeting, summarising the key issues on FORBIO and defining the list of actions by the partners.

Report on best practices for bioenergy policy, regulations and support schemes schemes which allow the most sustainable and energy efficient use of bio-resources

A desk-based research will be performed in order to identify the best practices for bioenergy policies, regulations and support schemes. As these practices are often linked to agricultural and technology practices, to the extent possible the research will incorporate the agronomic and industrial context in which best policy practices expressed their potential.

Feasibility Study Ukraine – Agronomic feasibility

Assessment of the agronomic feasibility of cultivation of bioenergy crops and short rotation plantations on Ukrainian case study site.

Feasibility Study Italy – Agronomic feasibility

Assessment of the agronomic feasibility of cultivation of bioenergy crops and short rotation plantations on Italy case study site.

Feasibility Study Germany – Agronomic feasibility

Assessment of the agronomic feasibility of cultivation of bioenergy crops and short rotation plantations on Germany case study site.

Reports on webinars

A brief report will be prepared on conducted webinars building capacity for relevant local institutions and experts on the future implementation of the adapted version of the GBEP sustainability indicators for monitoring the impacts of modern bioenergy.

Report on the assessment of the human and institutional capacity in place in the case study sites

This report will summarise the capacity at both the human resource level as well as at the institutional level in the selected case study (Germany, Italy, Ukraine) and outreach countries (Romania, Poland, Hungary, Belgium, Ireland, UK).

Reports on the info days in the target countries

Brief reports (in national language) will be prepared for each info day presenting project results to local landowners, farmers, local actors and biomass supply chain stakeholders. English summaries of these reports will be compiled in deliverable report D5.2.

Workshop report

A 2-day multistakeholder workshop will be organized to discuss the agronomic and technoeconomic feasibility and sustainability of producing advanced bioenergy in the selected case study sites. The results of this workshop (minutes, ppts, reports, interviews, etc) will be compiled into a report delivered to the stakeholder groups in each target country.

Production of a roadmap for the removal of the main economic and non-economic barriers

In consultation with the different stakeholders actions to remove the identified economic and non-economic barriers will be discussed and agreed upon. These actions will be summarized in this deliverable. It will include a roadmap for the adoption of those practices (at any level, from farm to policy) that have been researched, evaluated, discussed and agreed upon as being the enabling factors for the deployment of the sustainable bioenergy value chains identified.

Feasibility Study Ukraine - Technical and economic feasibly

Assessment of techno-economic challenges for the identification and implementation of promising use options for the produced biomass in the Ukrainian case.

Reports on training events in the target countries

Brief reports (in national language) will be prepared for each training event in the target countries aiming at enabling stakeholders to set up sustainable bioenergy supply chains on contaminated lands. English summaries of these reports will be compiled in deliverable report D5.3.

Final Report on the sustainability assessment of the selected advanced bioenergy value chains in all the case study sites

The set of sustainability indicators for bioenergy selected and tailored under WP3 will be measured in each of the case study sites. The results will be verified with relevant stakeholders from each identified site and will be included into the report.

Inventory of existing environmental, social and economic data sources in Italy, Germany and Ukraine

This is an inventory of the data that is going to be relevant to the assessment of environmental, social and economic sustainability of the value chains identified (WP3). The report will include all necessary data that are required to assess the indicators for sustainability of bioenergy along the lines with the full list of GBEP Indicators.

Reports on the training events in the outreach countries

Brief reports (in national language) will be prepared for each training event in outreach countries aiming at training stakeholders to start activities in their countries. English summaries of these reports will be compiled in deliverable report D5.4.
