Agriculture will become an important supplier of sustainable energy services for society. However, this sector can only fulfil this role if it operates on the base of sustainable energy provision itself. The project will determine the necessary measures to achieve this state for a concrete regional setting (eastern Styria) by the year 2020.
Development of an business segment called "Waldbiomasseversorgung-SÜDOST" through senior utilization of non active wood
A sharp increase in the Austrian industry's demand for wood, and in particular the rising need of biomass plant operators for energy wood, has led to a fundamental transformation of the timber market from a buyer's to a seller's market. New marketing opportunities in terms of a range of wood energy products, combined with an efficient way of harvesting, have opened up new economic prospects for the forestry industry.
The project deals with the production of synthesis gas from biological fuels and biological residues using steam blown gasification. This synthesis gas will be used for polygeneration especially for heat, power, gaseous (substitute natural gas, SNG) and/or liquid fuel production.
Development of a concept that shows the possibility of changing the energy supply of a district from fossil to 100% renewable energy carrier
Analysis of technical, economical and regulatory conditions to get fair terms under competition in the liberalised market for virtual power plants on renewable energy basis.
Obtaining, processing and dissemination of information about international development in the field of thermal gasification of biomass as well as leadership of several key aspects of the task.
Key issues for realisation and dissemination of extraction of biogas from byproducts, waste and bioenergy crops were modulated by international experts.
The overall goal of Task 39 is to facilitate the commercialization of biogenic, sustainable, low-carbon transportation fuels. This includes conventional and advanced biofuels produced through various technological routes such as oleochemical, biochemical, thermochemical, and hybrid conversion technologies. The main goal is to accelerate the decarbonization of the transportation sector, with an increasing focus on long-distance transport, which is more difficult to electrify.
IEA Bioenergy Task 39: Commercialising Conventional and Advanced Transport Biofuels from Biomass and Other Renewable Feedstocks (Working Period 2019 - 2021)
IEA Bioenergy Task 39 deals with the commercialization of conventional and advanced biofuels, including innovative raw materials, their economic, environmental and social assessment and the investigation of relevant policies. The Triennium 2019-2021 made findings from countries with a committed biofuels policy accessible to Austria, and success stories of Austrian industry, research and policy were promoted internationally.
IEA Bioenergy Task 39: Commercialization of Conventional and Advanced Liquid Biofuels from Biomass (Working Period 2016 - 2018)
IEA Bioenergy Task 39 deals with the commercialization of conventional and advanced biofuels, including innovative raw materials such as micro-algae, their economic, environmental and social assessment and the investigation of relevant policies. Findings from countries with a committed biofuels policy are made accessible to Austria, and success stories of Austrian industry, research and policy are promoted internationally.
Bioenergy Task 40 traditionally focused on international trade and supply chains of biomass for bioenergy. Starting in 2018, the systems view was broadened, also to better meet Austrian requirements. The supply chain focus was maintained, but with a broader premise: The establishment of bio-based value chains for a sustainable and fair bioeconomy.
IEA Bioenergy Task 40: Sustainable International Bioenergy Trade - Securing Supply and Demand (Working Period 2010 - 2012)
Relevant international trade currents of biomass for Austria as well as frame conditions for sustainable use of biomass have been analysed and documented. One of the key issues was to analyse certification procedures for sustainable bioenergy products.
Austrian Participation on IEA Bioenergy Task 42: "Biorefineries - Co-production of Fuels, Chemicals, Power, and Materials from Biomass", Triennium 2007 to 2009
IEA Bioenergy Task 42: Biorefining - Sustainable Processing of Biomass into a Spectrum of Marketable Bio-based Products and Bioenergy (Working Period 2010 - 2012)
Further development of the biorefinery classification system, identification of relevant biomaterial, development potential for energy and product oriented biorefineries, guideline for sustainability evaluation, global perspective on biorefineries, dissemination of knowledge, networking and involvement of stakeholders, country reports and trainingscourse.Kurzfassung
The main objective of the project is to improve the method for producing biodiesel by enzymatic catalysis.The target is to find a method to catalyze the production of fatty acid methyl esters by corn-cob-immobilized lipases which can be used in industrial scale.
Portfolio of technologies and action plan for the integration of renewable energy sources for district heating in cities and for enhancing the total efficiency of the supply chain from energy input to energy service.
A concept for a cooperative forest fuel supply chain network for a large part of Austria (regions of Salzburg, Upper Austria, Lower Austria, Vienna) is developed in order to minimise transport-, storage- and total system costs while simultaneously increasing supply guarantee for the plants.
The production of bioethanol in Bruck/Leitha in addition to the production of heat, power and valuable by-products from biomass will be optimized by a new process simulation tool under the target of maximum usage of waste and low temperature heat and optimal source and product usage.
Developing technical and business concepts and strategies for a sustainable power supply of supermarkets and local consumers - supply of heat, electric power and cooling energy on the basis of solar energy and solid biomass.
Biomass gasification is a success promising technology for the combined heat and power production based on the utilization of domestic biomass. With this project a safety and commissioning guideline for the technology was created for the enhancement of the technology's market introduction.
