ENVIRONMENTAL ASPECTS OF BIOMASS PRODUCTION AND ROUTES FOR EUROPEAN ENERGY SUPPLY

Objective

The objectives of the concerted action are to strengthen communication about the environmental aspects of biomass production and biomass routes, in order to :

- improve knowledge and insights of the participating organizations

- identify differences in national insights and causes of those differences;

- reach consensus where possible about guidelines for environmental analysis, about major environmental issues and about possible solutions for environmental problems.

The concerted action focuses on

- analysis and assessment of the environmental impact of the most relevant biomass routes for energy supply in Europe;

- assessment of feasible ways to reduce negative environmental effects and to increase positive environmental effects;

- assessment of the extent biomass can play a role in European energy supply with respect to environmental impact, agricultural development and land use.
