The availability of biomass is the bioeconomy’s lifeblood. Being able to predict flows becomes strategic for government and the industrial sector. Lately there has been a proliferation of analyses attempting to estimate how supply and demand will be modified over the years. According to a study by the University of Wageningen (The Netherlands), if by 2020 20% of chemical products and oil-based products were replaced by bioproducts, 34 MMT (million metric tons) of biomass would be necessary. By 2030, 30% would need at least 50 MMT. To give you an idea of what we are talking about, today the biomass used in the European Union is about 1 MMT.   The nova-Institute (Germany), in Bio-based Polymers in the World estimates that the production of polymers in the Union is bou...
