The MUSIC project, funded by the EU's Horizon 2020 programme, aims to facilitate market uptake of IBCs by developing feedstock mobilisation strategies, improved logistics and IBC trade centres. The three-year project will develop strategies to mobilise the use of non-food biomass, determine the most cost-effective logistics and facilitate the trade of IBCs. Converting biomass (e.g. forest residues, straw) to IBCs makes the material denser in energy, more homogeneous and thus easier to transport, store and use. Technologies for the biomass conversion, like fast pyrolysis or torrefaction, are rapidly developing. To achieve the full potential offered by IBCs this technology development needs to be accompanied by the implementation of appropriate logistics.
A core action in MUSIC is the elaboration of 4 case studies across Europe, in co-operation with both large industries and SMEs, to determine the most cost-effective routes for biomass and IBC mobilisation.Furthermore, improving the trade of intermediate bioenergy carriers both on regional and EU level is targeted. MUSIC will also involve, engage and support regional stakeholders for the establishment of IBC value chains.
