heal.abstract
The rapid growth of industrial production and economic development in general, was based mainly on the treatment of crude oil and the use of diesel. The direct output of this process was an unlimited pollution. Secondly, the scenario of depleting oil reserves over the years seems to be more certain than ever and hence the search for alternative sources of production fuel is imperative. In recent years, even the most sceptical understand the immediate switch to alternative energy sources in order to reduce environmental pollution while maintaining the low cost of purchasing and processing of raw materials. This research is based on the belief that the use of biomass as feedstock is an inevitable trend in refining and will try to explore the possibilities that exist today in Greece to extend this project. Then this paper will attempt to examine the supply chain governing the processing of biomass, the analysis of external and internal factors affecting the operation of all agencies involved in the process and the examination of three undesirable scenarios which according to the responses of respondents are their main fears. For data collection conducted in-depth interviews with executives involved in all stages of processing of biomass for biodiesel production such as an owner of energy crops, the vice president of a biodiesel production unit, a scientist from the EKETA and an executive of Planning Department of the Hellenic Petroleum Group. Further information was sought between the relevant Greek and foreign literature, as well from statistical surveys. The main conclusion of this research is that the biomass processing is an opportunity for rural and industry development in the country but largely dependent on EU subsidies and state tax exemption because of its high production costs.
