Bioenergy market supply chains 

Xiaoqian XU


Bioenergy products are produced and delivered from the upstream to downstream. In bioenergy market supply chains, feedstocks come from plantations or residues in upstream. Different bioenergy products could be produced for power generation, heating, or other use in downstream. There are many supply chains for sellers to deliver bioenergy products to consumers. Different factors in the supply chains could influence the stability of the bioenergy market. Policies as instruments for operating bioenergy market in four Asian countries are to be presented in the lecture.
