BOOKLET ON WOOD SUPPLY CHAIN
Wood biomass for energy purposes is a renewable source that could replace the combustion of polluting oil products. Recently, following Kyoto Protocol, the biomass use for energy purposes has been promoted, at European and at national levels, in planning documents and through various economic incentives. This booklet offers some local biomass supply chain analysis, as collected by project partners and observers for the areas of Chamonix Valley Municipalities, Slovenia and Aosta Valley. The purpose is to benchmark, when possible, the state-of the-art of wood supply chain by a “SWOT” analysis, based on surveys and reports already available when the “BBClean” project has started. These reports show different levels of knowledge and data quantity; at the moment, they have a good analysis level only for the three listed areas.
