Model for optimization of biomass utilization of energy production by energetic and economic requirements
AbstractBiomass-energy use is not a new idea. Earlier the by-products of the production processes or naturally grown materials were mainly used for energy production. One of the answers to the contemporary problems is the deliberate as well as mass production of the biomass, furthermore the planned and systematic collection of the by-products, which is the source of the energy being able to replace a part of the fossil fuels. At the same time during the production of biomass the conventional sources of energy are being used (fuels, the embodied energy which is used in the production of the equipment, etc.) which are to be taken into account in determining the net energy production. The research aims to examine how to optimize production and use of biomass energy supply chain process in the energetic and the economic criteria system, how to impact the managing models of the processes to the energetic and economic parameters of the supply chain, what kind of criteria and how these identify the natural (environmental), economic and social sustainability, and how they will be implemented e.g. in frame an innovation cluster. This article describes a test model, analyzes the results of the model examinations and the conditions for compliance with sustainability criteria.
