The general objectives of this contract with EU DG ENER is contribute to the swift, consistent, and cost-effective implementation by the EU Member States of the new REDII sustainability criteria applying to forest biomass (following a risk-based approach) and to agriculture biomass. This work will also assist economic operators in the sourcing of sustainable biomass for energy generation, and auditors and verifiers in their assessment on whether economic operators have effectively complied with the new EU bioenergy sustainability criteria.
BioMonitor addresses the information gap in bioeconomy research by re-structuring its existing data and modelling framework. The ultimate goal of the project is to get a clearer picture of how bioeconomy affects our lives.
In this small study the potential sources of bioenergy from forests will be analysed and their utilisation possibilities discussed. The client of the study is DGIII of the EU.
