AEBIOM position in the project: Project Leader
The project BioGrace-II harmonises calculations of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for electricity heat and cooling from biomass. The project builds upon the earlier (2010-2012) IEE-project BioGrace which harmonises GHG calculations for biofuels for transport.
- Build an Excel-based tool for GHG calculations for electricity and heat from biomass;
- Convince relevant policy makers from at least 6 Member States (six target countries: Austria, Belgium, Germany, Sweden, The Netherlands and UK) to chose for harmonisation and use the same tool or the same approach. The 6 Member States include those that have introduced sustainability criteria for solid biomass or are considering doing so;
- Involve companies and ensure that the GHG calculation tool meets their wishes. Besides, BioGrace-II will cause that verifiers (also called auditors or inspectors) are trained on how to verify GHG emission calculations both for biofuels and for electricity and heat from biomass.
Biomass feedstock producers, companies that convert feedstock into intermediate and final products (eg wood pellets, heat and electricity) and companies that distribute, sell and use these products.
