WP6: Techno-economic, social and environmental assessment of complete chains

Identification, assessment and optimization of the techno-economic feasibility and environmental and social sustainability of the bio-energy carrier pathways in Europe as well as the preparation of a Market Implementation Plan for biomass energy carrier based value chains belong to this workpackage.

WP6: Techno-economic

The figure shows the share of biomass (production and provision) in total conversion processes (incl. fuel distribution) impacts. GWP: Global Warming Potential; POCP: Photochemical Ozone Creation Potential; AP: Acidification Potential; EP: Eutrophication Potential; ADP: Abiotic Ressource Depletion Potential; CED: Cumulative Energy Demand. (RENEW)

Project structure

The project addresses the complete value chain from feedstock potential, the investigation of pyrolysis and hydrothermal carbonisation conversion technologies, the optimisation of transport and logistics to the exploitation of the energy carrier and its by-products. The techno/economic and environmental assessment includes the complete supply chain.
