De laatste jaren is de biobased economy sterk gegroeid door allerlei activiteiten, variërend van fundamenteel onderzoek naar nieuwe biobased toepassingen, tot het op commerciële schaal vervaardigen van biobased producten. Welke kansen biedt dit voor hout en houtige biomassa en wat zijn de verwachte effecten op de houtmarkt?
A New Value Chain for Rubber and Inulin Production in the European BioEconomy
Hingsamer, Maria ; Beerman, M. ; Jungmeier, Gerfried ; Meer, I.M. van der; Dijk, P. van; Muylle, Hilde ; Kirschner, Jan ; Kappen, F.H.J. ; Gevers, N. - \ 2017
biobased economy - biobased materials - biomass - rubber - taraxacum kok-saghyz - inulin
DRIVE4EU - ‘Dandelion Rubber and Inulin Valorization and Exploitation for Europe’, a European demonstration project sets up a European chain for the production and processing of natural rubber and inulin from Taraxacum koksaghyz (TKS, Rubber dandelion) to become less dependent on the import of natural rubber. Natural rubber is a sustainable material that is used for more than 40,000 products, e.g. natural rubber is applied in construction (adhesives, sealants), medicine (gloves, tubing) and transportation (matting, tyres) industries. Because of the specific quality aspects of natural rubber in many products it cannot be replaced by synthetic rubber. At the moment natural rubber is exclusively harvested from the rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis) of which about 90% is grown in South East Asia.

Sustainable woodfuel for food security : A smart choice: green, renewable and affordable

With food insecurity, climate change and deforestation and forest degradation remaining key global issues, this paper highlights the role of sustainable woodfuel in improving food security. Food insecurity and a high dependence on woodfuel as a primary cooking fuel are characteristics common to vulnerable groups of people in developing regions of the world.With adequate policy and legal frameworks in place, woodfuel production and harvesting can be sustainable and a main source of green energy. Moreover, the widespread availability of woodfuel, and the enormous market for it, presents opportunities for employment and for sustainable value chains, providing further rationale for promoting this source of energy. This paper explains how sustainable woodfuel is closely linked to food security and provides insights in how the linkages could be strengthened at all stages of woodfuel production, trade and use.
Literatuurstudie waarde halen uit groenresten in het waterbeheer
Doorn, Wim van; Kooij, Aldert van der; Dam, Jan van - \ 2017

Dit rapport beschrijft de resultaten van de verkennende literatuurstudie naar de mogelijkheden voor verwaarding via bioraffinage van vrijkomend maaisel en in het waterbeheer af te voeren waterplanten. Daartoe is een inventarisatie gemaakt van de vrijkomende hoeveelheden en samenstelling van maaisels bij de acht deelnemende waterschappen en is via een literatuurstudie informatie verzameld over de fysisch-chemische samenstelling van de meest voorkomende planten in de maaisels. Daarbij is een literatuurscan uitgevoerd van de wetenschappelijke literatuur naar wat bekend is over biomassa samenstelling van de meest voorkomende niet-inheemse waterplanten en de aanwezigheid van specifieke inhoudstoffen voor verwaarding. Op basis van deze informatie en inzicht in biobased conversie technieken, is een inschatting gemaakt van het potentieel voor verwaarding van deze groenresten door waterschappen. Mogelijke producten zijn eiwitten voor veevoeder of technische toepassingen, vezels voor papier/karton of diverse biocomposiet-toepassingen, en soms zijn specifieke inhoudstoffen aanwezig, zoals gelerende stoffen of antioxidantia.

The work described for this deliverable was carried out by DLO-PRI, in collaboration with WU, and aim ed to understanding lipid production in Phaeodactylum tricornutum . By means of transcriptome, proteome and metabolome analyses we aimed to provide insight into the one step lipid production performed by partner WU. Cultivation conditions were chosen to steer lipid profile towards most suitable composition for biofuel production.

Is there life after hype for Jatropha? Exploring growth and yield in Indonesia

Jatropha curcas L. is a biofuel crop that has not lived up to expectations due to a combination of hype and disappointment and biophysical factors. This PhD thesis is based on the plant production component of the JARAK programme which aimed to bridge the gap between truth and fiction. This study reviewed the jatropha hype and disappointment and further investigated the hypothesis that jatropha growth and yield are limited by biophysical factors of plant characteristics, cropping systems, and management. My review of the hype and disappointment shows that despite the high expectations fuelled by market pull and technology push, and numerous actors, the commercial potential for jatropha is limited by policy and governance, economics, social, technology, logistical, and environmental. A study of the biophysical components confirms that no current varieties suited to different cropping systems and locations are available. Jatropha aboveground biomass is partitioned predominantly into a structure of stem, branches, and twigs. The below to aboveground biomass ratio was 0.5 and fruit which was found only on productive twigs accounted for the smallest portion of biomass measured. Seed yields were disappointingly small (109 kg ha-1) and were largest in monoculture, followed by intercropping and hedgerows in that order, although yields were influenced by age and management of pruning and fertiliser. Seed yield across the three cropping systems can be predicted using plant height and the number of productive twig/branch, although the number of inflorescence clusters per productive twig may be important. Intercropping between jatropha and maize (Zea mays L.) resulted in competition for resources both belowground and aboveground that reduced maize yields. Shoot pruning was effective in managing aboveground competition, while root pruning and root barriers effectively managed competition belowground. Leaf prunings provided a limited, but positive fertility effect on maize yield comparable to 21 kg N ha-1. Jatropha - maize intercropping has potential for long-term productivity provided management practices such as fertiliser, pruning, and planting density can be developed to minimise competition and enhance complementarity. Based on my review of the jatropha hype and disappointment and my biophysical research results, the planting of jatropha by smallholders, or as a plantation crop cannot be recommended. Once the issues I highlight have been resolved and market confidence restored, jatropha may finally become a commercial source of biodiesel able to provide improved socio-economic and environmental benefits.

As the European Commission is working on the further development and concretisation of the post-2020 climate and energy policies, this study was commissioned to zoom in on the potential role, cost and benefits of biogas, and to assess the key barriers and drivers of biogas deployment in the EU. An important question to address was what policies at both EU and Member State level can best contribute to the effective and efficient growth of biogas deployment in the EU. The study focussed on biogas production by digestion processes of local waste streams, i.e. on biogas production from sewage sludge, landfill gas and from suitable organic waste streams from agriculture, the food industry and households.
