Opportunities and Challenges for Broadening Biomass Feedstock in Europe

November 2019

Resource efficient biomass feedstock supply is essential to sustain current capacities and facilitate market development for advanced bioenergy and biofuel technological pathways.

The European Technology and Innovation Platform Bioenergy (ETIP Bioenergy) - Working Group 1 Biomass Availability and Supply has prepared a working paper with the aim of: synthesizing recent research targeting European biomass feedstock for bioenergy; identifying opportunities and challenges and providing research and policy relevant recommendations for 2030 and beyond.

Four research areas are analysed: improving practices for forest biomass supply and logistics; biofuels from marginal land; biomass supply and cost supply assessments and certification & standardization.
