Transport, handling and storage

This task will test and develop transport, handling and storage equipment for the different solid bio-energy carriers. The project partners will compare the transport, handling and storage qualities of both the densified untreated energy crops as well as the densified thermo-chemically pre-treated energy crops. This task will ultimately result in clear trends of biomass quality changes due to logistics, handling and transport under changing seasons and geographical regions. It will evaluate the suitability of densification technologies as well as thermal pre-treatment technologies for handling and storage for different energy crops.
