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. The successful Respondent was to sample several types of UK produced biomass, including as a minimum Miscanthus, Short Rotation Forestry and Short Rotation Coppice (SRC) Willow, produced under varying conditions and have the samples tested to an agreed schedule in an accredited laboratory. The results were to be analysed against the planting, growing, harvesting and storage conditions (i.e. the provenance) to understand what impacts different production and storage methods might have on the biomass properties
