The main goal of this subproject is to develop an economically sound plan for a sustainable business based on renewable biomass from short rotation forestry. This is an essential link for the conversion of natural science results into viable support of a bio-based economy.

Specifically, based on the results and projections from this project, we will estimate the business and market potential of SRF with fast-growing and frost-hardy deciduous species (model tree Populus) in a future bio-based economy. Scientific knowledge about current and future yield potential and genotype-site match (affecting yield and cropping security) of relevant Populus genotypes across various environments in Sweden and the Baltic will be essential inputs to such business plan.
