Chemical composition data are being collected for different biomass varieties to investigate the variation in composition. This variation could be important when formulating new standards for biomass quality and certification e.g. for new applications as feedstock in bio­refineries. It is also investigated how this variation can be used in certification of origin and sustainable production of the biomass. The work includes a critical review of literature data combined with experimental studies to determine the chemical...
