Completed March 2003
A technical and economic study of the opportunities for bio-oil in
the European energy markets has recently been concluded (July 2003).
The project examined the competitivity of bio-oil in a variety of heat,
power and CHP applications in every EU country by comparing the cost of
a service delivered by bio-oil with the comparable service delivered by
a utility or by purchase of a fossil fuel. This will identify the most
promising opportunities in each country and provide better focus for
companies to enter this market.
