Achieving deployment of competitive and sustainable biomass supply chains integrated with traditional forest and agriculture supply chains as well as emerging bioproduct supply chains requires the effective application of technology and systems to provide improved integration, increased efficiency and reduced supply chain costs. The transition of energy markets offers new opportunities for bioenergy, especially in
terms of prosumers and biorefineries. The technologies and systems need to be properly planned, managed and deployed to deliver increased quantities of higher quality biomass for bioenergy in a value-driven bioeconomy. This requires a good understanding of the roles of actors along supply chains and their capabilities to reliably increase the quantity of high quality and value biomass for bioenergy. This work package aims to identify opportunities, strategies and practices for improved supply chains and supply chain technology to support increasing quantity and quality of biomass for bioenergy in a profitable bioeconomy.
