This report contains the results of research into the potential and possibilities of establishing Integrated Biomass Logistics Centres (IBLCs) in a number of specific agricultural sectors and industries in Europe. This research was conducted within the framework of the AGROinLOG project that is funded from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
As one of the steps to achieve a wider implementation of the IBLC concept, AGROinLOG has analyzed the opportunities of implementing new businesses. The focus was on the production of intermediates for bioenergy & biofuels and on biocommodities for biobased products. Also possible logistical integration was studied, in the sectors selected as the most promising for implementing IBLCs in Europe. These chosen sectors are: 1) vegetable oil extraction, 2) olive oil mills (chain), 3) feed and fodder, 4) wine sector (cellars & distilleries), 5) grain chain (incl. straw until final product biofuel) and 6) sugar industry.
