Forest biomass in metal industry – future possibilities and consequences (BioMetInd)

Publicerad: 22 januari 2019


Investigate possibilities for Swedish mining and metallurgical industry to use forest biomass to reduce CO2 emissions, in a system where the same limited biomass resources are also used by other sectors to reduce climate impact

Identify and quantify biomass-based technologies and concepts for the industry

Regional price-determining market model for forest biomass markets to analyze priceaffecting local and regional market changes

Analyze trade-offs between using forest biomass in metal industry and other sectors

Evaluate the CO2 benefits compared to other large-scale biomass use

Analyze impacts of different policy instruments and technology development
