IEA Bioenergy Task 43, Biomass Feedstocks for Energy Markets – Triennium 2016-2018
The work of the Task in the referred triennium addressed issues critical to mobilising sustainable bioenergy supply chains, including all aspects of feedstock production, its markets and environmental, social and economic impacts. The objective was to promote sound bioenergy development that is driven by well-informed decisions by land owners, businesses, governments and others. This was achieved by collecting, analysing, and sharing technical and non-technical information related to biomass feedstock supply and providing relevant actors with timely and topical analyses, syntheses and information. The Task has a global scope and includes commercial, near-commercial and promising feedstock production systems in agriculture and forestry, and the primary focus is on land use and land management of biomass production systems.
