This work details the design of the procurement channel of a biomass power plant in the South of Italy, with a particular attention to the analysis and optimization of the collection and transport of biomass. In the context examined, a main limit to the use of biomass resources was the lack of an efficient procurement network, as well as the weak coordination between procurement, energy production and its commercialization, which, indeed, are crucial factors to ensure high efficiency of the power plant. The design of the biomass procurement channel and the feasibility analysis of the energy production are carried out through 4 main steps, ranging from the estimate of the biomass available in the targeted area (Basilicata, South of Italy), to the economic analysis of the system.

Abstract

This work details the design of the procurement channel of a biomass power plant in the South of Italy, with a particular attention to the analysis and optimization of the collection and transport of biomass. In the context examined, a main limit to the use of biomass resources was the lack of an efficient procurement network, as well as the weak coordination between procurement, energy production and its commercialization, which, indeed, are crucial factors to ensure high efficiency of the power plant. The design of the biomass procurement channel and the feasibility analysis of the energy production are carried out through 4 main steps, ranging from the estimate of the biomass available in the targeted area (Basilicata, South of Italy), to the economic analysis of the system. On the basis of the case study considered, the paper outlines a suitable methodology for the design of procurement networks of biomass, and proposes useful guidelines to optimize the procurement activities of the corresponding power plants. Moreover, although the paper is a case study, from the analysis carried out useful guidelines can be derived, that can be exploited in practical cases to optimize the procurement activities of biomass power plants.
