Biomass supply chains

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The chapter discusses the biomass supply chain, which bears the role of supplying an energy conversion plant with biomass, at the correct quantity, time and quality specifications. The chapter first categorizes the biomass and waste streams and presents analytically the biomass supply chain, discussing its structure and characteristics. It then proceeds in reviewing the latest advances in biomass supply chains. The issue of integrating biomass energy conversion into waste management systems is tackled and the advantages and limitations of using biomass, in supply chain terms, are presented. The chapter concludes with future trends in biomass supply chain and logistics, and proposing sources of further information
