Short description:

This report presents the analysis of the biomass potential in the EU-27 and Switzerland along with their possible use for energy purposes. Estimates were made for the following types of biomass:
•agricultural (straw, orchard’s pruning, hay) and animal residues (manure surplus),
•forestry residues,
•natural conservation matter (urban maintenance of green areas, hay, and shrubs),
•roadside vegetation,
•urban and industrial waste (biodegradable municipal waste, selected waste from the food and wood industry).
Estimates were made for spatial unit’s NUTS-3, which are small regions with geocode standard for referencing the subdivisions of countries for statistical purposes.
