2016-06-09 Italy: Biomass Energy: By-Product Optimizer Portal - Nearby and Always Available Biomass


Biomass Energy: By-Product Optimizer Portal - Nearby and Always Available Biomass

Description of the project offered: 
By its nature, residual biomass is distributed throughout the territory; part of this resource is someway already "available", but this doesn't imply its current efficient exploitation. There are problems related to presence not evenly distributed over the year, in addition to energy conversion process, logistical and authorization problems.
The aim of the project is to overcome these problems by setting up a short value chain that supports socio-economic development. We want to transform in added-value products what now is just by-product or waste agricultural and forest-based.
Via digital platform, the geolocalized availability of residual biomass is indicated in real time. By-product owners are informed about economic and energy potential of their biomass everywhere and at all time. In the meantime people and companies looking for energy are informed about biomass availability. The economic value is suggested by the platform based on the previous trading days.
In EU path of energy source transition, we open the access to new markets. In Italy, agriculture byproducts have a potential of 4 TWh of electricity, about eleven times national energy needs. If just a small part of this market is exploited, the energy supply will be more economical and environmental sustainable (Italy is oil and coal importer).
The project will be also extend to other possible uses of biomass byproduct beyond energy production, and it will work for all EU thanks to the generation of a replicable business.
