BioEnergy Farm II
Short description:

The BioEnergy Farm II project is looking at micro-scale biogas installations which mainly use own manure and feed left-overs from the farm as a feedstock. The project informs farmers about the existing options for micro-scale digesters. Furthermore, they are being assisted in checking the feasibility of a micro-scale digester on their farm. 15 feasibility studies explore different ways to use the biogas, including alternatives of producing electricity and heat with a CHP installation, gas upgrading for gas grid feed-in, producing heat in a biogas boiler and upgrading the biogas to transport fuel.

Online feasibility calculator of biogas plant is therefore based on these 15 feasibility studies and consultants’ data from Austria, Spain, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Poland.

The main objective of the project SEEMLA (acronym for “Sustainable exploitation of biomass for bioenergy from marginal lands”) is the establishment of suitable innovative land-use strategies for a sustainable production of plant-based energy on marginal lands while improving general ecosystem services. The use of marginal lands could contribute to the mitigation of the fast-growing competition between traditional food production and production of renewable bio-resources on arable lands.

The SEEMLA GIS web application was built to provide an assistance regarding the identification and exploitation of marginal lands for biomass production.

The S2Biom project supports the sustainable delivery of non-food biomass feedstock at local, regional and pan-European level through developing harmonized data sets, strategies and roadmaps at local, regional, national and pan-European level for the EU-28, Western Balkans, Ukraine, Moldova and Turkey.

The S2Biom toolset contains all data, tools, documents and reports generated in the project. These tools enable users to:

  • Interact with the results by making sub-selections for data they are interested in;
  • Design their own biomass delivery chain and evaluate the performance;
  • Obtain to the point information on specific issues of relevance for developing a biomass delivery chain which can be key characteristics on logistical components, biomass conversion technologies, matching of biomass types with technologies, biomass potentials, cost and characteristics, biomass markets, sustainability issues, policies and regulations, national biomass strategies.
