Abstract

The present work deals with determining barriers for thermal energy and electricity generation from agricultural biomass in Turkey. Strategy development and determination of barriers were investigated in accordance with the work program requirements for the project entitled "Exploitation of Agricultural Waste in Turkey" under the European Life Third Countries Program. The study has been organized and presented according to the following three phases: (i) market barriers for electricity and thermal energy generation (ii) identification of barriers to the promotion of agricultural waste exploitation in Turkey, and (iii) conclusions for strategy development.
