Sustainability Assessment of Growing and Using Willow for CHP Production

A. Kamp, H. Østergård & M. Gylling
The objective of this study was to assess to which extent bioenergy from willow can be considered renewable. Also, it was intended to show on how many and on which types of resources the production of bioenergy from willow depends.
