Characterisation of biomass feedstocks
To secure the sustainability and efficiency of the process, variations in the composition of mushroom compost, wheat straw and other underutilised agricultural residues will be analysed over the course of a year.
Furthermore, according to the various compositions of these feedstocks, project partners will determine the optimal combination of mushroom compost and wheat straw and / or other underutilised feedstocks to ensure a year-round supply of biomass to the innovative biorefinery.
Additionally, rapid methods for real time evaluation of biomass feedstocks will be developed within the project. Integrated to a biorefinery, this new methodology will allow partners to monitor the mushroom compost conversion process at each step.
