Sustainability of energetic products
By now the sustainability of biomass for energy is the fundamental criterion of EU policies to promote their use. Its evaluation is based on precise parameters as an LCA analysis (Life Cycle Analysis) taking into consideration the structure of production chains, mass flows and energy flows.
Using SimaPro software the Biomass Lab has performed LCA analyses on agro-energetic chains, with energetic-environmental balances and evaluating their impacts (GHG, acidification, eutrophication, etc.)
The Biomass Lab working team took part in developing National technical normatives:
European policy promotes renewable energies and sets specific targets. Solid biofuels can play a...
