Objectives Objectives not supplied
Abstract The overall aim is to investigate the potential of UK grassland as a biomass feedstock, including through the use of a new biohydrogen pilot plant, by collecting data to generate a model for biomass production and conversion. This will be used to develop a data set for the life cycle assessment (LCA) of this new bioenergy chain which includes Geographic Information Systems (GIS) data.
