13:30 - 15:00
Session code: 4AV.1 Market Attractiveness and International Approaches for Developing Sustainable Criteria and Tools
Session Description

The attractiveness of bio-energy projects depends on many factors, often linked to policy, feedstock and contextual parameters. In this session, the techno-economic viability of different technologies and their investment interest and risks will be explored for various national markets and measurement for sustainable criteria including GHG, land use, LCA, energy and land use in an international context will be presented.
