The sustainability assessment of biomass plant and biorefineries for regional and national policies

2011-11 Author

Ecomondo 2011. Proceedings (Rimini, 3-6 novembre 2011) (ISBN:8838769869) )

This work concerns an assessment scheme of the biorefineries and the use of energy from biomass according to sustainability criteria. The proposed assessment scheme considers 4 threshold requirements and 7 bonus requirements. The main requirement meet the standard of the Renewable Energy Directive 2009/28/CE (RED) concerning the green house gases (GHG)savings. According to this standard the GHG saving shall be at least 35%. The work highlights those conditions occurring along the production pathway which is necessary to control in order to fulfill the GHG criteria.
