Short description:

This report introduces a collection of ICT, IoT, and Industry 4.0 technologies utilized in Biomass Supply Chains that constitute current state-of-the-art along with their brief descriptions. The technologies are divided by the location of their applications into two categories:

  1. Regional state-of-the-art describes solutions utilized in the involved demonstrator regions of Andalusia, Spain, and South-Eastern Ireland;
  2. Pan-European state-of-the-art describes solutions utilized in other regions of Europe.

This collection will later be used as an input for the ICT-BIOCHAIN platform. The list represents the current best knowledge of its creators. However, due to continuous technological progress, it is probably neither exhaustive nor very accurate yet in the near future. Therefore, in the ICT-BIOCHAIN platform, technology description will also provide information on the date of entry or last modification, and the platform will have the capability for updating the information.
