  • 1. Biomass for Energy: The Water Footprint for Biodiesel Winnie Gerbens-Leenes University of Twente – the Netherlands Water Footprint NetworkThe Water-Energy-Food Security Nexus, Koln, Nov 26th 2012 www.waterfootprint.org
  • 2. What is water used for?
  • 3. The Water Footprint of Humanity Hoekstra, A.Y., Mekonnen, M.M. (2012). PNAS109(9):3232–3237.
  • 4. Will Water Be‘The Oil of the 21stCentury’?
  • 5. Overview Presentation1. The water footprint concept2. The water footprint of energy3. Impacts on water systems4. Conclusions
  • 6. 1The water footprint concept
  • 7. Water footprint of a product►the volume of fresh water used to produce the product, summed over the varioussteps of the production chain.►when and where the water was used:a water footprint includes atemporal and spatial dimension.►type of water use:green, blue, grey water footprint.
  • 8. Components of a water footprint Direct water footprint Indirect water footprint consumption Green water footprint Green water footprint Water Water withdrawalNon-consumptive water use (return flow) Blue water footprint Blue water footprint pollution Water Grey water footprint Grey water footprintThe traditional statisticson water use [Hoekstra, 2008]
  • 9. Grey water footprint• volume of polluted freshwater that associates with the production of a product in its full supply-chain.• calculated as the volume of water that is required to dilute pollutants to such an extent that the quality of the water remains above agreed water quality standards.

  • 41. 4Conclusions
  • 42. Conclusions►when and where the water was used:a water footprint includes atemporal and spatial dimension.►type of water use:green, blue, grey water footprint.► large increase in bio-ethanol and bio-diesel consumption
  • 43. Conclusions► differences depend on agricultural system, crop typeand climate► water shortage in India, USA, China, SouthAfrica, Pakistan, Germany, Spain, France, Italy► sufficient in Brazil
  • 44. ConclusionsWater footprint of bioenergy  Large variation in values: 10 - 4000 m3/GJ  Water footprint (bio)energy will increase  Increasing competition in the Water-Energy-Food Security nexus
