A scientific study to provide 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
Research project to investigate the variability of UK-produced biomass properties
Project involved the sampling and analysis of different types of UK-produced biomass
The project provided an understanding of UK-produced “2nd generation” biomass properties (derived from plants and generated through photosynthesis), how these varied and related this variability to the origins of the samples tested. It involved the sampling of several types of biomass from across the UK under various planting, growing, harvesting and storage conditions. The results were analysed to understand the scale of variation and what impacts different production and storage methods have on biomass properties.
