Barriers to the Development of Wood Biomass-derived Bio-products

Barriers to the Development of Wood Biomass-derived Bio-products

Wood Biomass-derived Bio-products The most important barriers towards the development of wood bio-based products market are their high pricing in terms of purchase and the technological barriers that still face many of the related processes.

Bio-based products are more expensive than their fossil-fuel derived equivalents. This is because of:

  • High feedstock prices, and
  • High capital and operating costs of related production processes

Many of which are still at an R&D, or demonstration level. The low prices of fossil fuels in the last years worsen the situation as they make the use of wood biomass feedstock economically unattractive.

Let's take a look at the major barriers for a sustainable production and market development of bio-based products derived from wood biomass.
