The overall objective of the ME4 research project was to develop an integrated framework to assess and analyse the spatial implications and related opportunities and consequences of an increased implementation of biomass delivery chains for energy, biofuels and biochemicals at different geographical levels. The research project has addressed four main topics: biomass in The Netherlands and EU present and future situation; framework tool for integrated spatial design and assessment of regional biomass chains; regional biomass chains evaluation; dialogue on sustainability of bioenergy.
