An integrated framework to assess spatial and related implications of biomass delivery chains

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

The overall objective of the ME4 research project was to develop an integrated framework to assess and analyse the spatial implications and related opportunities and consequences of an increased implementation of biomass delivery chains for energy, biofuels and biochemicals at different geographical levels. Tapping into the national and regional biomass potential is quite difficult. The hypothesis of this project was that the biomass potential can be mobilized better if innovative regional biomass delivery chains are designed. Therefore, an integrated framework to assess spatial and related implications of sustainable regional biomass delivery chains is needed. The research project has addressed four main topics: design of sustainable regional biomass delivery chains and assessment of their spatial implications; develop an integrated framework to assess spatial and related implications; analyse and assess National & European possibilities for biomass production and utilisation under different scenarios; test methodology to actively involve stakeholders in the development of biomass chains.
