    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


    An inventory of biomass availability presented by Dornburg et al. (2010) suggests that agricultural and forestry residues could provide an equivalent of 85 EJ of energy in 2050. According to IEA Bioenergy (2011), wastes and residues together with sustainably grown energy crops should be able to provide the majority of the biomass feedstock requirements needed to realise biofuel, as well as heat and power targets in 2050, but the exact amount and character remain unrevealed.
