Biomass Flows

Explore the supply and use of agricultural, forestry and fisheries biomass in the EU.

The diagram represents the flows of biomass for each sector of the bioeconomy, from supply to uses including trade. It enables deeper analysis and comparison of the different countries and sectors across a defined time series. This diagram is a compilation of harmonised data from the various units contributing to the Biomass project.
