GIS map: Interactive web atlas for the visualization of biomass potentials in Bosnia and Herzegovina
Project

Interactive Webatlas online

Based on an updatable database, an interactive web atlas was developed for Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) to visualize the potential of 23 agricultural and forestry biomasses. This consistent information on the biogenic raw material base is a central pillar for the strategic evaluation of options for action in the bioenergy context. The results are publicly available at http://atlasbm.bhas.gov.ba/.

DEMO-SPK pilot project presents results

The primary objective of the DEMO-SPK pilot project was to investigate and verify the behaviour of renewable kerosene mixed with fossil JET A-1 under realistic conditions in the supply infrastructure of a major airport. This involved demonstrating the successful use of Multiblend JET A-1 across the general fuel supply infrastructure, from procurement to refuelling the aircraft for the first time for international use.

DBFZ project investigates on insect biomass

Population growth is leading to an increasing demand for food and feed. Insect meal can make an important contribution to meeting the protein requirements of livestock farming and fish farming. A project is investigating the development of a cost-optimised value chain for biobased olefins and complex nutrient media based on insect biomass for technical applications.
