S2Biom review paper: Sustainable supply of non-food biomass for a resource efficient bioeconomy.

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.

The aim of this S2Biom paper is to give a state-of-the-art overview about various studies which investigated the present and potential sustainable supply of non-food biomass in the EU.

S2Biom Policy options to mobilize sustainable non-food biomass resources for the bio-based economy

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.

This S2Biom report describes policy guidelines and exemplary policy options allowing policy makers from the respective levels to quickly appreciate potential support frameworks that exist and efficient ways to apply them to mobilize sustainable biomass resources for different market sectors of the bio-based economy.

S2Biom summary and individual reports on optimal logistical concepts case studies

S2Biom summary and individual reports on optimal logistical concepts case studies

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.

This S2Biom report provides an overall summary as well as three individual case studies to match optimal logistical concepts (conceptual designs) with the specific regional situation:

  • Small-scale power production with straw and Miscanthus in the Burgundy region (France);
  • Large-scale power production with straw and residual woody biomass in the Aragon region (Spain);
  • Advanced wood logistics in the Province of Central Finland.

Data on biomass availability and demand and quality specifications of the conversion technology have been used in combination with data on logistical components and concepts to provide guidelines for the case study partners to construct relevant regional cases. These advanced regional case studies can serve as example for other regions in the EU-27.

  • Direct combustion
  • Gasification (and the syngas platform)
  • Fast Pyrolysis
  • Torrefaction
  • Techniques from the pulp and paper industry
  • Biochemical conversion technologies
S2Biom Atlas with regional cost supply biomass potentials

S2Biom Atlas with regional cost supply biomass potentials

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.

This S2Biom report contains regional cost supply biomass potentials for EU 28, Western Balkan Countries, Moldavia, Turkey and Ukraine (D1.8)

S2Biom Database on lignocellulosic biomass characteristics

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.

The S2BIOM toolset serves as repository for all data, tools, documents and reports generated in the project. The S2BIOM tools can be used in various ways:

  • to make sub-selections for data you are interested in; 
  • to design biomass delivery chains and evaluate the performance;
  • to obtain to-the-point information on specific issues of relevance for developing a biomass delivery chains (like 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, and national biomass strategies).

Technical characteristics of all toolset components are described here: https://s2biom.wenr.wur.nl/doc/S2Biom_D4_10_technical%20description%20toolset_Ver%202_FINAL.pdf
