Welcome to the new website of Task 40, IEA Bioenergy. We recently moved our contents from http://www.bioenergytrade.org to this page which is under the management of IEA Bioenergy organisation.
IEA Bioenergy Task 40: Sustainable International Bioenergy Trade, commonly abbreviated Task 40, was established under the International Energy Agency (IEA) Bioenergy Implementing Agreement in December 2003 with the aim of focusing on international bioenergy technology potential, barriers, and trade as well as its wider implications.
18-19 May: Welcome to join us at the international workshop Sustainability of bioenergy supply chains organised at Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel, Södra Hamngatan 59, Gothenburg, Sweden. Abtract of presentations could be found here.

|Survey on sustainability of bioenergy supply chains:
Dear Task 40 readers,
We would like to invite you to take a survey regarding the sustainability of bioenergy supply chains by answering our questions via the link below:
With your contributions, we hope to understand the positions and underlying motivations of stakeholder groups relative to their perceptions of bioenergy and inform dialogues/discussions to avoid misconceptions and gain trust in bioenergy.
Developing the Global Bioeconomy: Technical, Market, and Environmental Lessons from Bioenergy
Purchase | This book reviews the bioenergy sector and draw useful lessons for the full deployment of the bioeconomy. As expectations that a future bioeconomy will rely on a series of tradable commodities, this book provides a central accounting of the state of the discussion in a multidisciplinary approach that is ideal for research and academic experts, and analysts in all areas of the bioenergy, biofuels, and bioeconomy sectors, as well as those interested in energy policy and economics.
Mobilisation of Forest Bioenergy in the Boreal and Temperate Biomes: Challenges, Opportunities, and Case Studies
Purchase | The book features input from key international experts who identify and analyze the main opportunities and roadblocks for the implementation of sustainable forest biomass supply chains in the boreal and temperate regions. . It also proposes recommendations for practitioners, policymakers, and future research in the field of bioenergy conversion and management, as well as those interested in sustainable management of natural resources.
