The conversion technologies Fast Pyrolysis, Catalytic Pyrolysis and Hydrothermal Carbonisation studied in the BioBoost project apply a broad feedstock spectrum of lignocellulosic fuels from dry to wet. Suitable biomasses occur in various waste and residue streams from agriculture (straw, surplus manure), forestry, land management, food processing, and settlement (waste wood, organic municipal waste). In order to cover the whole value chain, the biomass cost determination was included. However, as the primary focus of the project is on the conversion technologies and the overall concept of remote bioenergy intermediates for final energy commodity production in central facilities, the costs have been determined based on the published information. In the assessment chain, the biomass cost report receives information on available amounts as input from the biomass potential assessment (WP1 Task 1) and contributes to the logistic- (WP4) and the overall techno-economic assessment (WP5).
