Objective

Deliverables

  • Logo Design

    It will be the image of the project and will provide identity to the project. AVEBIOM will prepare several proposals and send to all partners by month 1

  • WEB site

    Development of a dynamic project website linking all generated knowledge. The web site will be operational from the beginning of the project (month 3). It's expected to have at least 2000 visitors in the WEB page by the end of the project.

  • BIOMASUD platform

    During the BIOMASUD project an on-line platform http://trazabilidad.ciemat.es/ was developed to keep record of data related with batches and traceability (quantity, date of production, type of biomass, GHG emissions, etc.). The idea is to add some capabilities to the platform and keeping all the data about quality and sustainability in one database. The features that will be added to the BIOMASUD platform are: - New sustainability criteria defined in task 4.1. These criteria, to be defined during the project, will be designed to be evaluated within the new platform. - The GHG calculation tool developed in task 4.2. will be included in the platform to calculate the GHG emissions along the supply chain. - The energy balance will be included in the platform to calculate the energy balance along the supply chain - Currently some information is available to the final consumer as the ability to calculate GHG emissions and energy balance until the home of the final user by introducing the postal code and the batch number. Also it’s possible to find information about biomass companies thanks to the database completed in WP2 and BIORAISE. It will be studied which of the new information about the certified companies is possible to published without publishing sensible information (for example, not publishing individual data of GHG emissions of one company but averages of one country of GHG emissions or energy balances,

  • Report of the selection of the BIOMASUD biofuels for combustion tests

    A selection of the biofuels to be considered for combustion tests will be made among the biofuels that will be finally enclosed within the improved BIOMASUD label. Olive stones, a recognized widely used residential heating biofuel in most of the Mediterranean countries, and two other fuels will be selected for the combustion studies by CIEMAT in collaboration to BIOS, CERTH, CBE, taking into account the results of the national market studies of WP2. Two different quality classes of one biofuel might be selected for study

  • Leaflet

    Two project leaflets will be printed. (1 page, 500 copies for the first one and 1500 for the second one per language, Italian, Greek, Portuguese, Slovenian, Turkish, Croatian and Spanish, also as pdf) to serve as general and technical information material for all events organised during the project. It will be designed by AVEBIOM with the information of all partners. A digital version of the PDF will be uloaded on the WEB and send it to the stakeholders related and it's expected to rearch 3000 downloads / deliveries per country. In the first leaflet will attempt to capture the general objectives of the project and shall be addressed to the general public. The second leaflet will be developed with more technical information and will target stakeholders involved in the use and participate at the quality system. These leaflets are delivered in both general and technical events. After its design it will be distributed by AVEBIOM to the rest of the partners in order to translate it and print it. It will be ready by month 8 and 24

  • Selected list of biofuels and motivation

    The selection will be led by CIEMAT in collaboration with BIOS, CERTH. and CBE, and the final agreement of selected biofuels of AVEBIOM, AIEL, TUBITAK, ZEZ and GIS.

  • Selected biofuels characterization results and quality assessment report

    Initially, samples of the selected commercial solid biofuels will be collected in the different countries (maximum five non SUDOE countries for olive stones and dried fruit shells and seven countries for the rest of selected biofuels) by the corresponding national partners (AVEBIOM and CIEMAT will do this task jointly in Spain) and sent to the participant laboratories, according to the pre established samples distribution protocol. A total of at least ten samples of each biofuel will be collected per country. The samples will consist of biofuels in the market from different producers or, in the case sufficient different producers are not available, samples of the same producer but collected at different times (different production lots) will be considered. All the samples will be analysed, according to the corresponding EN (ISO) standard methods: humidity, ash and volatiles contents, elemental (C,H,N) analysis, chlorine and sulphur contents, calorific value, ash components (micro and micro elements) and ash melting point (CEN/TS 15370-1). Moreover, the CIEMAT will determine the sintering behaviour of all the samples according to a specially developed in- house method. This method is based on the determination of the fraction of biomass ashes preheated to 550°C under oxidising conditions which remains on a 0.25 mm sieve after specific sieving conditions. The ashes are previously produced by ashing the selected fuels in air atmosphere at different temperatures from 800º C to 1,400º C, with a heating slope of 3ºC/h. Aquality assessment for each biofuel will be then delivered by CIEMAT, according the results obtained in the described tests.

  • Roll up

    One roll-up will be designed by AVEBIOM with the information of all partners in order to give visibility to the project in the events. After its design it will be distributed by AVEBIOM to the rest of the partners in order to translate it and print it. It will be ready by month 8

  • Review of the Sustainability Criteria

    A revision of new sustainability criteria to be included into the BIOMASUD scheme will be realized

  • Residential heating biofuels market state of the art report

    The scope of the proposed study will basically comprise for each country: identification of the importance of the residential heating biofuels market in the context of the national energy demand and the bioenergy market, the biomass resources available for relevant biofuels production in each country, the residential heating biofuels production and biofuels use and market prices, the main biofuels chains description, the related legislation and market support measures and relevant information of the most representative national market stakeholders. The public acceptance of the studied biofuels will also be addressed. The market studies will be developed by the partners AIEL, TUBITAK, CERTH, ZEZ and GIS, for Italy, Turkey, Greece, Croatia and Slovenia, respectively. CBE will carry out the market study for Portugal and AVEBIOM and CIEMAT jointly, for Spain. AVEBIOM and CIEMAT will jointly elaborate the templates of the questionnaires for the rest partners to collect the required information.

  • Report of the State of the art of combustion devices for the selected biofuels

    A review of the manufacturers of commercial combustion equipment (stoves and boilers) presently existing on the market providing certified designs for the use of Mediterranean biofuels will be made. A description of the stoves and boilers, capacity ranges, technologies and components used, relevant design characteristics and operation conditions, biofuels and biofuel requirements, and certified efficiency and emission data as well as costs will be compiled.

  • Residential solid biofuels stakeholders list and description

    a list of stakeholders within the biomass sector will be considered the agroindustries (oil and nut companies), biomass and biofuel producers and suppliers, boiler and stove manufacturers, installers and ESCos. If the industrial production is not available, estimations will be made according accepted industrial conversion rates. Stakeholders data will be provided from the national market studies of the task 2.1
