170 7 Annex ment and the

170 7 Annex ment and the results of the environmental analysis for The Netherlands. He was involved in the project from September 1999 till August 2000. Ir. Henk van Zeijts: Senior Scientist, born in 1966. Diplom in Agronomy at Wageningen Agricultural University, with CLM since 1992. Fields of expertise: farm management strategies, nutrients, agrienvironmental policies, life cycle assessment (LCA), bio-energy. Henk van Zeijts shared the responsibility of co-ordinating the work of CLM with Marjoleine Haanegraf. His work within the project comprised the issues of biodiversity and soil quality as well as the development of the methodology for the socio-economic and policy analysis. Marjoleine Hanegraaf: Born in 1960, studied tropical agriculture at the Rijks Hogere Landbouwschool in Deventer and obtained a MSc-degree in soil science at the University of London. She has worked as a researcher on a number of projects related to the effects of nutrients, pesticides and heavy metals on soil fertility. At the Centre for Agriculture and Environment which she joined in 1993, she works on energy consumption and production in agriculture. Marjoleine Haanegraf shared the responsibility of co-ordinating the work of CLM with Henk van Zeijts. Her work within the project comprised the issues of biodiversity and soil quality as well as the socio-economic and policy analysis. CRES – Centre for Renewable Energy Sources (Greece) Calliope Panoutsou: Her activities cover agricultural engineering and agricultural economics. She is the head of Biomass Department of CRES, with eight years of RTD experience in biomass for energy. She has been involved as a partner and project manager, in several European projects. She participated in the second year of the project as the scientific responsible for CRES and she collaborated with the other partners in the determination of the methodology applied and the interpretation of the results for Greece. Anastasia Nikolaou: Her activities cover agricultural engineering and agricultural biology. From 1997 until today she has been a staff member in the Biomass department of CRES specialised on energy crops and environmental aspects of biomass energy systems. At her position in CRES she has participated in the carrying of many European projects. In the framework of this project she was involved in the determination of the bioenergy chains under study, data collection and interpretation of the results for Greece. Dr. Nicholas Dercas: His activities cover both agricultural and hydraulic engineering. From 1993 until 1999 he was a staff member in the Biomass Department of the Center for Renewable Energy Sources (CRES). At his position in CRES he has participated in the carrying of many European projects. He participated to the first year of the project as the scientific responsible for CRES and he collaborated with the other partners in the determination of the methodology applied and of the bioenergy chains under study. Since 1999, he is a Lecturer in the Agricultural University of Athens. CTI – Italian Technical Committee (Italy) Prof. Ing. Giovanni Riva: Born in 1952. Mechanical engineer. Since 1976 he works in the field of energy and has a remarkable expertise in process analysis/design with special reference to thermal/electric plants. Full professor at the University of Ancona (mechanics), he worked for different international organisations (UN, UE). More than 250 technical papers. Since 1993 general secretary of CTI and of ATI (Italian Thermotechnical Association; around 1500 members). Due to these activities he has also developed an expertise in congresses and working groups organisation. In this project he was the co-ordinator of the Italian staff. Dr. Elio Smedile: Born in 1938. Biologist and Environmentalist. From 1988 to 1994 head of Environmental Dept. of the Italian Electricity Board (ENEL); since 1996 responsible of R&D activities of CTI. Member of the Board of Directors of ITABIA (Italian Biomass Association) and co-chairman of the

7.4 List of authors and addresses 171 committee "Energy & Environment aspects" of ESNA (European Society for New methods in Agricultural research). In this project he was involved as scientific co-ordinator and as expert in political and economical matters. Dr. Antonio Panvini: Born in 1966. Graduate in Agronomic Sciences. He works as CTI's responsible for data banks and databases since 1996. He is involved in different projects and works concerning biomass and biofuels. Between these works: a report on biodiesel application in Italy and the development of standards in the field of renewable sources. He maintains two yearly data-books on Italian energy laws and standards. In this project he developed and applied the tools for LCIA calculation for all chains studied in the different participating countries; he was responsible for environmental and economic data relevant to the Italian chains. Dr. Julio Calzoni: Born in 1964. Graduate in Agronomic Sciences. He works as CTI's responsible for different researches. Among the different works: a technical-economic study on heat-pump application, a report on the future developments of standards on renewable sources, an intensive experimentation on biomass drying and storage. He works also on the organisation of different national and European working groups committed to the energy use and the installation of the relevant combustion plants for biomass and wastes. In this project he was involved in the Italian data collection. FAL – Swiss Federal Research Station for Agroecology and Agriculture (Switzerland) (Since 1.10.1999 after the transfer of the Swiss agricultural LCA research from FAT to FAL) Dr. Gérard Gaillard: Group Leader Life Cycle Assessment at the FAL Research Station. He studied agricultural engineering at the Swiss Technical Institute of Technology of Lausanne (EPFL). Since 1993 active in the field of life cycle assessment in agriculture, first at the FAT, since 1999 at the FAL. He published several studies on life cycle assessment of crops and agricultural techniques, co-author of the Swiss Evaluation Report on Renewable Raw Materials, participated in the European concerted actions "Environmental Life Cycle Assessment for Agriculture" and "LCA network for the food chain", member of the Editiorial Board of the International Journal of Life Cycle Assessment. He co-ordinated the methodological contributions of all groups for the LCA part of the project. FAT – Swiss Federal Research Station for Agricultural Economics and Engineering (Switzerland) Lena Heinzer: Agricultural engineer from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich. Employed at FAT from 1998 until 2000, involved in all tasks of the project. Cornelia Stettler: Environmental engineer from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich. Three months trainee at FAT with responsibility for the economic calculations. IFEU – Institute for Energy and Environmental Research Heidelberg (Germany) Nicolai Jungk MSc: Born in 1972, BSc Environmental Science, MSc Sustainable Agriculture, graduated from the Universities of Edinburgh and Aberdeen and has been working for the IFEU Institute since August 1999. He has specialised in the subjects of renewable resources and land use assessment within LCA. Within the "Bioenergy for Europe" project he was responsible for the composition of the final report. Gitty Korsuize MSc: Trainee at the IFEU Institute from November 1999 to May 2000. She studied Environmental Science at the University of Utrecht and Stuttgart. Master thesis on “Urban flora and urban climate” in August 1999. In “Bioenergy for Europe” she has been involved in collection of life cycle input data related to Germany, the validation of the input data for all countries and the assessments on costs and employment for Germany.
