Biomass and Food
Since the early 1990s, we have been carrying out environmental assessments and sustainability analyses on virtually all relevant aspects of the general topic biomass and nutrition. These include foodstuffs and animal feed, bioenergy and all aspects of renewable raw materials from different biomass sources from agriculture and forestry, including by-products and waste.
Simultaneously, we are actively engaged in methodology development and advance, and we represent ifeu on relevant standardisation committees and panels, as well as accepting chairperson duties.
Our work in the area of biomass and nutrition includes projects for a great variety of national and international funding agencies and clients. These include the World Bank, a number of UN organisations such as FAO, UNEP, UNFCC, UNIDO, several commissions of the European Union, various federal ministries, state governments, municipalities, private corporations from Daimler and Coca Cola to family businesses, and NGOs like WWF and Friends of the Earth.
