An extensive study into the availability and quality of biomass resources in Europe has shown the potential for new commercial fast pyrolysis plants to be opened in France, Finland, Romania and the Netherlands. The study was conducted within the Bio4Products Horizon 2020 project, which is testing the feasibility of a fast pyrolysis based biorefinery concept.
