Sustainable biomass production and use, lessons learned from The Netherlands
The Netherlands Programme Sustainable Biomass (NPSB) was developed to gain experience in the production and certification of sustainable, based on practical experiences. The NPSB programme has run from 2008 to the end of 2013. During its run, the programme has clustered knowledge from the biomass project portfolio and filled the knowledge gaps with supplementary research.
The project portfolio1 consisted of projects from the Global Sustainable Biomass tenders (DBM projects), from the Sustainable Biomass Import tenders (the DBI projects) and of several relevant projects from the Daey Ouwens Fund.
