Biomass demand (WP7): Biomass demand (WP7):

In S2BIOM an analysis was done of the current and the future biomass demand and consumption patterns.

The forward looking analysis was done from the energy and biomaterials sectors perspective and it was assessed using the ReSolve model. This was done for the 4 S2BIOM scenarios and the summary of the main results can be viewed by clicking on the table cells underneath.

The results of all work done in WP7 on future demand have been extensively described in deliverables D7.2 (A quantitative estimate of biomass demand in 2020 and 2030), D7.2a (Market analysis for heat, electricity and biofuels), D7.2b (Market analysis for lignin and sugar platforms) and D7.2c (Market analysis of biomethane, BTX, methanol, hydrogen, ethylene, and mixed alcohols).  Deliverable D7.3 provides the complete results of the forward looking analysis.

A summary of key results on future biomass demand and consumption are presented  for the years 2015, 2020, 2025 and 2030 in the table underneath. Click on the cells to view the results on demand and consumption of biomass per scenario:
