Agricultural Biomass Potential in Turkey
The vegetal biomass potential of Turkey is investigated in this study. The vegetable derived biomass is
considered to be field, garden, and vegetable crops. The contribution of each species on the biomass energy potential is
studied. For the related issues, the data published by Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources of Turkey for the production
period of 20122014 are used. The available vegetable residue in the country is estimated to be equal to 142.4 mtons/year.
The total biomass potential of the country is found to be approximately 15.9 toe/year.
