Wood resources

Potential biomass resources from forestry including thinning as fraction of annual increment and logging residues as share of annual felling. The layer shows densities by accounting for forest biomass available within a radius of 30km around each location.

< 200 GWh/a (< 720 TJ/a)
200 – 500 GWh/a (720 - 1800 TJ/a)
500 – 1000 GWh/a (1800 - 3600 TJ/a)
> 1000GWh/a (> 3600 TJ/a)

Straw resources

Straw resources from biomass within a distance of 30km of each location. This layer shows densities of straw wastes from cereal production from all possible arable lands.

< 200 GWh/a (< 720 TJ/a)
200 – 500 GWh/a (720 - 1800 TJ/a)
500 – 1000 GWh/a (1800 - 3600 TJ/a)
> 1000GWh/a (> 3600 TJ/a)
