The Material Flow Monitor of CBS shows how different sorts of materials (e.g. minerals, steel, biomass) flow to, within and from the Dutch economy; however, flows of especially biomass residues are insufficiently captured. The aim of this KB1-1B study is to quantify the supply and use of the main biomass residues, as well as the individual components they consist of (such as C, N, P), and embed these details in the Material Flow Monitor. This increases the insight into unwanted leakages to the environment (soil, air, water) due to the supply and use of biomass, and shows opportunities for potential new circular business cases to use biomass residues more efficiently.
