Bio-energy chains from perennial crops in south europe (BIO-ENERGY CHAINS)

Objective

As set out in the White Paper, the goal is to significantly increase the use of biomass, adding a further 90 Mtoe by the year 2010. Of these 45 Mtoe are expected to derive from energy crops. The overall objective of this project is to “evaluate, in terms of technical, socio-economic and environmental feasability, the whole bio energy chain from biomass production to thermo chemical conversion for a number of perennial energy crops carefully selected to ensure, by successive harvesting, a year-round availability of raw material". The output of this project is to identify the best options of bio energy resources and technologies in southern Europe, in monetary, social and environmental terms.
