The sustainability of biomass-to-energy pathways

pathwaysObjective

The objective of this activity is to assess the sustainability impact of a number of bio-energy pathways within six countries (Finland, Italy, Lithuania, Poland, Germany and the Netherlands). Knowing the quantified/qualified sustainability of existing/planned bio-energy pathways is a good starting point for further assessing and understanding the importance of the implicit and (in)direct influence that market systems and policy frameworks have on the sustainability performance of biomass-to-energy pathways and the potentially non-energy use alternative pathways that are using the same biomass resources.

Assess of the impact of policy instruments on the sustainable use of biomass

icon4o
Objective

Within this activity the BIOTEAM consortium partners will assess the impact that a selected number of key social, economic and environmental policy instruments have on the behaviour and actions of bio-energy pathway stakeholders. Understanding this relationship between policy instruments and market stakeholder behaviour allows us to better understand the (in)direct relation between policy instruments and the sustainability performance of bio-energy pathways.

Advance our understanding of the impact of market system dynamics on the sustainable use of biomass

icon3oObjective

Within this activity the BIOTEAM consortium partners will assess the impact of day-to-day competitive (or distorted) market forces on the behaviour and actions of bio-energy pathway stakeholders. Understanding this relationship between the dynamics of the market systems and market stakeholder behaviour allows us to better understand the influence of market forces on the sustainability performance of bio-energy pathways. The BIOTEAM consortium will use an existing tool called market mapping to perform the market system assessments.

Provide tools and guidance for public and private stakeholders

icon2oObjective

Within this activity the BIOTEAM consortium partners together with public and private stakeholders will assess if and to what extent the financial-economic optimization tendencies of pathway stakeholders also result in the most sustainable pathway outcomes. In order to do this a series economic optimization simulations for a number of bio-energy pathways will be performed. The simulation results will evaluated with the help of a multi-criteria assessment (MCA) that aims to strike a balance (weighting) between the social, economic and environmental impacts. This weighting will be performed in a participatory setting with stakeholders
