Welcome to the logistical component database which you can access underneath (click on numbers in last column)!

The database on logistical components was elaborated in WP3.  In the underneath table an overview is given of all logistical components included in the database organised in categories and sub-categories according to the main functionalities it has. In the last column of the table users can click on the icon to enter the detailed characteristics of every logistical components included in the database. It includes a long list parameters for pre-treatment, storage and transport technologies that are needed to deliver biomass feedstock of a specified quality at the correct moment to a processing technology. In the current version of the database per conversion technologies parameters are specified on general properties (e.g. functionality, technology readiness and number of systems already in operation), technical properties, biomass input and output specifications and financial and economic properties. 

A logistical component is one of the links in the biomass value chain from biomass to (final) conversion. Examples are pre-treatment, storage and transport technologies that are needed to deliver biomass feedstock of a specified quality at the correct moment to a processing technology. Before the database was filled a selection was made of relevant logistical components and how they needed to be characterised in the database. This is described in D3.1 together with an overview of the populated database.  Using the information on logistical componenents and making an inventory of existing logistical value chains developed in various European projects, the most important logistical concepts were characterised in D3.2

The logistical concepts selected and described in WP3 have been further tested in several case studies using different tools supporting the design and evaluation of biomass delivery chains through formalised steps and evaluation indicators. The LocaGIStics and BeWhere tools were developed and implemented in a stepwise approach for the regions of Burgundy and Aragon . The reports can be accessed here: Burgundy case study, Aragon logistical case study. For the Finish case study the BeWhere and the Witness simulation models were implemented and this is described here: Finland logistical case study. An overview of all 3 case studie approaches and key messages is given in deliverable D3.4 & 3.6
