Biomass Monitoring and Surveying through remote-sensing geoinformation system
Summary:
A German SME specialised in IT geoinformation has developed a remote-sensing based vegetation surveying system. It derives the biomass potential of a given area based on information from satellite-borne sensors. The technology can be used to find ideal locations for new plants or business optimisation. Partners in public administrations, biomass plants, service providers or research institutions are sought for commercial agreements with technical assistance or joint research projects.
Description:
The effective energetic use of biomass is crucial when it comes to providing alternative and carbon-neutral sources of energy, especially heat. The collection of biomass has to be close to the biomass plants for economic and ecological reasons. However, non-existing cadastral maps for biomass and insufficient technologies for data collection have hitherto hampered an effective surveying and monitoring of biomass potentials in a certain area and a structured approach for the use of remote sensing data. This concerned first and foremost landscape maintenance efforts such as the cutting of hedges and green stripes.
A German SME in cooperation with research institutions has developed a remote sensing-based surveying system for biomass based on information from the satellite-borne sensors of the Copernicus Sentinel. It can monitor hedges, shore stripes and road greening in a given area and derive the respective biomass potential in quality and quantity. The given objects often have a width of less than 10 meters.
The system is based on linear structures, a precise division into lots and respective calculations. It differentiates between woody and herbaceous biomass and calculates the respective substrate volume and its energy content. Spectral mixing is used as an evaluation method which allows for the precise measuring of area segments in the sub-pixel range.
Beneficiaries of the technology can use the data as a basis for economic profitability calculations and investment estimates, management strategies for biomass plants or location decisions in spatial planning. Landscape managers can use the technology to exploit areas hitherto unused or to optimize existing biomass strategies or harvesting logistics.
Partners sought are partners in public administration, biomass utilization plants, research institutions or service providers dealing with biomass for commercial agreements with technical assistance or joint research projects.
Advantages and Innovations:
- Improved energetic use of biomass stemming from landscape maintenance otherwise considered as waste
- Systematic approach for linking landscape conservation measures and biomass use
- Reduced carbon emissions through more effective use of biomass
- Time savings through accurate data about quality and quantity of biomass potential
- Economic savings through exact recommendations for plant localization, optimization of management plans or harvesting logistics

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
Partners sought are partners in public administration, biomass utilization plants, research institutions or service providers dealing with biomass for commercial agreements with technical assistance or joint research projects. Task to be performed for commercial agreements with technical assistance is the integration of the technology into existing geo-information systems. Necessary knowhow for the setup of the system will be provided by the German company. Research and industrial partners are sought for research cooperation projects to further improve the technology at European level.
