Commercially available solid biomass of current geographic origins likely to reach full potential in the future

Incremental demand likely to be covered by biomass from developing countries

Availability of competitively priced and sustainable biomass from these countries is currently low

GDFSUEZ and Solidaridad work together since 2008 to develop basic elements for a sustainable biomass supply chain from Mozambique

Approach:

addressing and solving uncertainties to reduce risk profile and build viable business cases for Triple bottom line torrefied biomass supply chain from Mozambique

Development of a certified, sustainable (triple bottom line) biomass supply chain from agricultural by products and short rotation coppiced trees from smallholder producers in Mozambique, and evaluation of the feasibility of torrefaction under Mozambican circumstances.

Two business cases will be developed:

1. Local-to-local supply chain (sustainable charcoal for local application): stepping stone model and learning vehicle

2. Export supply chain (large volumes export commodity for biopower generation): hypothetical - based on some actual building blocks

For local to local, encroacher bamboo, next to eucalyptus and sawdust will be used as feedstock.

For export, encroacher bamboo will be used.

The feedstock and business concept will be according full sustainability guidelines including sustainability assessment.
