Abstract
The major objective of this thesis is to quantify the trans boundary shipment data for the solid biomass waste in Europe for the years 2010 – 2015. The thesis discusses the major importers and exporters of solid biomass waste especially hazardous as well as non hazardous wood waste in Europe, the current as well as future trends in this sector, the trade maps and key drivers of the import and export of solid biomass waste. It further discusses the key drivers such as the legislations surrounding the trans boundary shipment of waste in the EU and its individual member states and capacity factor of the wood waste to energy industries established in the EU countries. Finally, it analyzes the primary energy supply of the imported wood waste in every country and its contribution in the bioenergy supply in the energy share of a country. The time period of the study is chosen from 2010 till 2015. The countries which are actively participating in the shipment of the solid biomass waste majorly wood waste are chosen and are examined as individual cases.
