a resource-efficient Bioeconomy in Europe - supports sustainable delivery chains of non-food biomass feedstock.
This poses a logistical challenge because the quality and handling characteristics, and often also the moisture content
of biomass restricts options for efficient logistics and for efficient conversion into bio-energy. A task of the logistics
work package was to identify and characterize the main logistical components. A logistical component is defined as
one of the links in the biomass value chain from biomass to conversion. Examples are pre-treatment, storage and
transport technologies that are needed to deliver biomass feedstock of a specified quality to a processing technology.
These logistical components were then entered in the first prototype of a database. This paper shows the database
design, the main data available and the way how to use the individual logistical components when designing optimal
biomass value chains.
Keywords: database, logistics, pretreatment, storage, supply chain, costs.
