Abstract

Developed agricultural regions generate substantial quantities of cellulose residues, which at present are only partially utilized. The remainder is destroyed, thereby damaging the environmental quality of the region, and leading to additional expenditures for environmental management.

The rise in primary energy prices has recently stimulated investigations of the feasibility of converting residues into secondary energy forms such as biogas and ethanol. This paper presents an application in the Silistra region, Bulgaria, of a model for utilizing local residues for energy production. The model, developed at IIASA, is designed to assist regional decision makers in their investigations of the effects on the regional energy balance of introducing new energy-conversion installations.
