Biogenic materials in Switzerland - mass and energy flows; Biogene Gueter in der Schweiz: Massen- und Energiefluesse

Abstract

This study supplements a series of studies carried out under the 'Energy 2000' programme and its follow-up 'SwissEnergy' on the energy potential of biomass in Switzerland. This study compiles data from existing studies and statistics and presents them as detailed mass and energy flow diagrams. The findings of the study confirm that the most important biomass fluxes are generated by animal feed stuffs and manure and that these represent an important potential for use as a source of energy. The authors state that in the foodstuffs and wood/paper industries a high level of sustainability in resource usage has been attained and that the largest losses in mass and energy flows can be found in livestock breeding and human biomass consumption.
