Abstract

The EU roadmap for a low carbon economy in 2050 suggests scenarios for massive decarbonization by 2050, aiming to achieve a 80% decrease of overall GHG emissions (compared to 1990) and almost the total decarbonization of the energy sector (European Union 2011). The bio-economy, which is based on bio-energy produced from biomass and waste opens up the possibility to escape from coal and oil resource dependence. Bio-energy is expected to have a crucial role among renewables by 2020. Replacing fossil fuels with biomass could lead to a decrease of CO2 emissions and help solve the problem of global climate change. This chapter attempts to explore the promises and real possibilities of the bio-economy in fulfilling this expectation focusing on some serious risks in the case of its sustainable global application.
