The objectives of this work are:
(i) To identify and estimate marginal lands suitable for energy crops production in some EU regions
(ii) To identify appropriate cellulosic energy crops that could be cultivated on these marginal lands and to determine their potential biomass yields.
(iii) To quantify and map agricultural and forest residues biomass that could complement cellulosic energy crops production in the selected EU regions.
The analysis was conducted for three cases that represent the three agro-ecological zones (AEZ) selected in the MAGIC project. The target audience for this report is internal and external stakeholders as well as the public. Internal stakeholders are project members that have to be informed about the progress of the work package activities (e.g., project coordination’s team, work package leaders, and work package collaborating partners). The collaborating partners for this report are WUR, BTG and ARKEMA. External stakeholders are institutions or person that could benefits from outcomes of the work package or project such as all participating countries on European level, research institutions, local and national institutions, and local industry such as Deshyouest etc.
