Abstract One of the challenges for the bio-based economy is to achieve production efficiency that can compete with fossil-based products. New scale-efficient product supply chains have to be created, or current supply chains have to be amended to incorporate the biomass supply chain. These new supply chains are more complex in nature than existing ones. This report looks at the economic and institutional factors that determine the costs and benefits of the various actors in new bio-based supply chains, with a special focus on risk, and at ways to model the economics of these supply chains. Only hypothetical data are used in this report. The research is part of the development of an economic model of bio-based supply chains.
