Eco-efficient Transport

Transport is of major concern regarding sustainability, but assessments mainly focus on the impacts of transport policies or on a single organization/enterprise. Few studies have been done at the complete value chain or territorial level. A methodology for assessing transport sustainability for the FWC has been developed within the EFORWOOD project. This study will further develop and combine this approach with a methodology for the impact analysis of future bio-energy sectors (heat, electricity, fuel from plant biomass). More research is needed to grasp the streams and the associated transport (all transport modes) and the logistics dimension of the FWC. The research will mix theoretical and empirical approaches in order to include stakeholders’ behaviors and their willingness to change and modify their usual practices.
