Report on the Mapping of Biomass Value Chains for Improved Sustainable Energy Use in the Baltic Sea Region Countries Published

The University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn (Polish partner of the BalticBiomass4Value project) published a report which maps biomass value chains for improved sustainable energy use in the Baltic Sea Region countries. The research focuses on the 9 Baltic Sea Region (BSR) countries: Denmark, Germany, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Sweden, and Norway.

The general objective of this study was to map biomass resources and most commonly used bioenergy technologies in Baltic Sea Region countries and to exchange information on best practices and technologies between countries, not only on bioenergy uses but also on additional value chains based on biological resources.

More specific aims were:
• to assess biomass potential and biomass logistics from different sources (agriculture, food and feed industry, forestry, wood industry, municipal waste and sewage sludge, fishery),
• to assess biomass conversion technologies, including thermo-chemical, physico-chemical and biological conversion used in BSR countries,
• to provide information about technological solutions (including pilot plants under implementation experience) from different BSR countries and comparable/neighbouring regions,
• to identify different technological solutions, technology readiness level and the best bioenergy practices in bioenergy in BSR countries.
