Purpose and goal
The aim was to develop, together with industry, an application for sustainable management and storage of biomass, containing estimates of sustainable potential for the raw materials from forestry and agriculture used in subprojects, mapping the need for new knowledge to ensure sustainable management and development and more efficient disposal of residual flows from arable land. The goal is to increase the knowledge about cost-effective storage of residual from agriculture and forestry without extensive losses, thereby increasing competitiveness and delivery security.
Expected results and effects
In order to safeguard the supply of biomass in the future, in addition to high production per area, cost-effective management and storage of various residual and lateral streams from agriculture and forestry also requires. The preliminary study led to the subproject being included as a work package in the coordination project. The purpose of the work package is to map the potential of residual flows, the need for new knowledge for sustainable storage and technology solutions for more efficient disposal of residual flows from agriculture.
Planned approach and implementation
The mapping of the potential of various commodities will be done in conjunction with the subprojects to determine the quality requirements of potential raw materials, a knowledge review of the raw materials´ storage characteristics. During Year one also begins the development of the technology for collecting the cleaner fraction from threshes, a work that is followed up by evaluations in fields associated with the grain harvest.
