Short description:

The S2Biom project investigates sustainable feedstock supply for bioenergy and bio based products throughout the European Union, their Eastern Neighbors as well as the South Eastern Balkan States. The results obtained in a case study aiming at throughout investigation of the value chain of synthetic Biofuel production from wood and agricultural residues in Northern Germany and Eastern Poland will be presented. The biomass potential of the regions has been determined and the data are used to feed a value chain model developed earlier within a previous EU project2 . The study focuses on regionally split production pathways with regional rather small to medium scale pretreatment plant producing an intermediate energy carrier which can be easily transported to new or existing facilities for upgrading to transportation fuel. This approach is studied on economic and logistic, properties, including fuel production cost and distribution of added value. The optimization model will provide information on capacity and location of new built plants for pretreatment and conversion, takes into account existing refinery capacity and models fuel amount and cost. Conclusion will be drawn on the feasibility of biofuel production in the studied regions.
