In Ireland, IEA Bioenergy released its latest report, “Technical, Economic and Environmental Assessment of Biorefinery Concepts — Developing a Practical Approach for Characterisation” which provides an overview on biorefinery assessments methods and results.
Currently, there are two main challenges related to assessing the environmental and economic components of biorefining processes: data availability and stakeholder participation. To address these issues, IEA Bioenergy’s Task 42, Biorefining in a Circular Economy, examined assessments currently underway to determine the capability of biorefineries in creating a sustainable future. Such assessments aim to highlight the potential of biorefineries to enhance the use of biomass in generating both products and energy.
