Learning Outcomes

The student understands the concept of the biomass by-products. The student knows the main principles of calculating of the regional biomass and by-product potentials in Finland. After the course, the participants are able to utilize the available calculation software for dimensioning the inputs and outputs of the heating and biogas plants.

Course Contents
• The by-products of different biomasses
• Calculating of a regional biomass and by-product potential
• Planning the use of the end-products of the biomass utilization in a region
