Bioenergy can be produced from other resources than grain/straw, corn and wood. In the EU project EUBIONET III, the European market for unexploited "alternative" biomass resources is scanned. The main focus was on agro-industrial residues, but other potential biomass resources have been considered. A conservative estimate is that there is a potential of at least 300 PJ in Europe from agro-industrial residues, which are not currently used for energy purposes. The figure is maybe 2...
