Abstract The primary objective of this 2015/16/17 Project was to provide an understanding of UK produced biomass properties, how these vary and what causes this variability. This 86 page report is the second of seven deliverables produced as part of Phase 1 (2015/16) of the Characterisation of Feedstocks Project and the second of two under Milestone 1. It describes the rationale for both the experimental design and the decisions taken. Deliverable 2 was to provide technical details to enable the ETI to check the technical validity of the project, in particular that feedstocks and soils would be representatively sampled, sample integrity would be maintained, approved laboratory methods would be used, and that both the statistical analyses and database design would be fit for purpose.The report provides the following
  • how sampling consistency will be assured;
  • the design for the planned database;
  • the roles and responsibilities between all parties involved in sampling, data collection and lab analysis.
  • the rationale for the experimental approach
