Torrefied bamboo for the import of sustainable biomass from Colombia
Daza Montaño, C.
The report presents the results of the technical, economic and sustainability assessment of the import of torrefied bamboo pellets from Colombia to the Netherlands as a biomass supply chain for electricity production. The base case assessment considers the bamboo species Guadua angustifolia. Additionally to guadua, alternative species have been identified (Guadua amplexifolia, Bambusa vulgaris, Chusquea subulata and Dendrocalamus strictus) and subjected to a preliminary technical assessment. Up to date, there are no studies on the use of the bamboo species Guadua angustifolia in the heat and power sector.
