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).
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.
