Specifications for the application of the United Nations Framework Classification for Resources to Bioenergy Resources
This document has been prepared by the Bioenergy Sub-group that formed a part of the Working Group on Application of UNFC-2009 to Renewable Energy Resources of the Expert Group on Resource Classification.
The adoption of Specifications for the Application of the United Nations Framework Classification for Resources (UNFC) to Bioenergy Resources will facilitate their management and support their increased use as countries progress towards more sustainable energy production and consumption.
Five case studies were prepared to facilitate understanding of the applicability of the UNFC to Bioenergy Resources. These case studies cover projects on sugarcane ethanol, corn ethanol, renewable diesel, miscanthus cellulosic ethanol and biopower from wood. They help to put into perspective the complexities in the management of bioenergy and demonstrate how UNFC can simplify the process.
The Specifications for the application of the United Nations Framework Classification for Resources to Bioenergy Resources is available in this link.
