Dees, M.; Elbersen, B.; Fitzgerald, J.; Vis, M.; Anttila, P.; Forsell, N.; Ramirez-Almeyda, J.; Glavonjic, B.; Staritsky, I.; Verkerk, H.; Prinz, R.; Leduc, S.; Datta, P.; Lindner, M.; Zudin, S.; Höhl, M.

Within the S2BIOM project, WP1 provides state of the art data on current and future sustainable lignocellulosic biomass cost and supply levels for EU28, Western Balkans, Ukraine, Turkey and Moldova.

This report provides an overview on the major results in form of maps, tables together with a brief explanation and interpretation. It complements the biomass supply tool that allows interested parties to prepare their own customised tables, maps and cost-supply curves meeting their specific interests and requirements.

Potentials can be presented differing options in maps. An explanation on this issue is provided in Annex A7.

This report is based on the S2BIOM final data set that is described in S2BIOM report D1.5 (Datta et al. 2017) whereas the methods and data sets used to compile these data are described in S2BIOM report D1.6 (Dees et al. 2017).

The geographic scope, the spatial resolution and the thematic scope can be briefly described as follows.

Geographic scope:

  • EU 28
  • The Non- EU28 Western Balkans countries Montenegro, Macedonia (FYROM), Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Kosovo.
  • Turkey, Moldova Ukraine

Spatial resolution:

  • EU 28 – NUTS 3
  • Other countries – equivalently defined administrative units

Main categories covered:

  • Forestry – Wood production and primary forest residues (10 subcategories)
  • Agriculture - Primary production of lignocellulosic biomass crops and primary agricultural residues (20 subcategories)
  • Grassland - Unused grassland cuttings (1 category)
  • Other land use – biomass from landscape maintenance & road side verges (4 categories)
