 WP1: Feedstock and logistics

Develop a feedstock supply strategy for future industrial BtL production

Establishment of 200 ha demonstration plantations with fast growing trees on agricultural land.

 

Development of feedstock supply strategy and concepts for a large scale BtL plant (200000 t BtL/a).

 


Achievements:
  • Biomass procurement strategies from regional and international feedstock sources
                           
  • Optimized biomass logistics of different feedstock qualities and regions of origin
                           
  • Concept of large scale short rotation coppice (SRC) plantation establishment for large scale bioenergy plants
                           
  • 230 ha of SRC in Eastern-Germany and NW-Poland planted
                           
  •  Assessment of biomass potential in India

200 ha of short rotation coppice (SRC) were planted on several locations in northeast Germany and Poland with excellent results.

  • Contractual arrangements with land owners have been established.
  • A biomass feedstock sourcing concept showed supply strategies for larger scale plants. 
  • Lessons learned show that efficient weed control is critical to get good growing results in the first year.
  • An additional task has been included in the workprogramme:  Investigation of biomass ressources and potential for BtL production in India. First results are expected in 2011.
