A scientific study providing an understanding of the properties of UK-produced “2nd generation” biomass, how these vary, and the extent to which this variability can be linked to the provenance of the samples tested
About the project
- Forest Research & Uniper delivering the project
- Research project to investigate the variability of UK-produced biomass properties
- Project involves the sampling and analysis of different types of UK-produced biomass
The project will provide an understanding of UK-produced “2nd generation” biomass properties (derived from plants and generated through photosynthesis), how these vary and relate this variability to the origins of the samples tested. It will involve the sampling of several types of biomass from across the UK under various planting, growing, harvesting and storage conditions. The results will be analysed to understand the scale of variation and what impacts different production and storage methods have on biomass properties.
