Abstract

Currently most economies are based on fossil and mineral resources, which end as waste or fossil CO2 emitted into the atmosphere. The vision of a sustainable economy would need the shift to a solar based market. Hereby the use of renewable resources for products and energy services is one of the main challenges. An efficient use of biomass describes a major pillar of a sustainable resource management. A maximum of service should be provided on the way from resource recovery to CO2 emission into the atmosphere at the end of the product life.
