This project is part of a broader effort to develop a descriptive grid of agricultural biomass residues to support decisions about how they can optimally be recovered. The specific aim is to go on a short mission to Belgium to share expertise and discuss available data on biomass characteristics. The project complements other projects on biomass use in Québec and Mexico and the use of agricultural residues to produce greenhouse heating oil and pelleted feed for pigs.
Develop a digital tool for quickly identifying the best way to recover agricultural residues based on environmental, technical, economic, and energy-related criteria
This international collaboration will contribute to the optimal repurposing of agricultural byproducts.
