This summary report presents GHG emissions ranges for a number of priority biomass supply chains in 2012, comparing the default biomass supply chains modelled in the UK Solid and Gaseous Biomass Carbon Calculator (BCC) with data provided by industry stakeholders, and estimates the potential GHG emissions reductions which may be achieved in 2020 and 2030. It presents specific findings for coal plant conversions and dedicated biomass plants based on consultation responses, discussions with project developers and supported by the scenario analysis.

The project assisted DECC in forming its response to the 2012 consultation on biomass electricity and combined heat and power plants - ensuring sustainability and affordability, its aims were to:

  • Evaluate the range of life cycle GHG emissions for current feedstocks used in the UK,
  • Assess the potential for future improvements in GHG savings, and analyse the possible impacts on industry if more stringent standards are introduced.
