S2Biom Database on lignocellulosic biomass characteristics

The S2Biom project supported the sustainable delivery of non-food biomass feedstock at local, regional and pan European level through developing harmonised data sets, strategies, and roadmaps at local, regional, national and pan European level for EU28, Western Balkans, Ukraine, Moldova and Turkey. The project improved scientific evidence on the availability, cost supply, technologies and framework conditions (policy, financing, sustainability) for lignocellulosic non-food biomass by 2030.

A database for standardized biomass characterization was developed and populated for all lignocellulosic biomass types covered in the S2Biom project. This database was intended to be used to determine, if certain biomass types can be used as feedstocks for specific conversion technologies.

The biomass characteristics and the conversion technology requirement characteristics were combined to develop the biomass matching tool Bio2Match.
