In 2008 the Central Science Laboratory were commissioned by NNFCC to undertake a simple mass balance analysis of the current production and use of agricultural straw sources in Great Britain.

The developing renewable heat and power sector is looking to source biomass and for opportunities to site facilities in areas where biomass supply can be confidently secured. Hence, there is growing interest relating to information on the availability of cereal straw that would otherwise be ploughed back into soil.

Additional sources of straw could also be derived from oilseed rape and linseed crops, although only very small volumes are currently collected.
