Relative Profitability of Short Rotation Crop Resources for Biofuels: Impacts of Biomass Yield and Technology of Densification. Softwood Residues and Miscanthus Applications.

J. Poustis
Bioenergy using wood and non-wood cellulosic fibers as an alternative energy source is getting a huge amount of attention. The autor analyzes the economics and feasibility of harvesting, handling transporting and integrating wood and non-wood cellulosic fibers from operations in order to match the various components of the fuel supply chain. Focussed to biomass energy, a simple sensitivity analysis was carried out at the Aquitaine Region ( Southern of France) with increasing biomass yield of...
