As a result of increased pressure on the German Federal Government, on 5th of December 2007 the Federal Cabinet passed a draft for the so-called Biomass Sustainability Ordinance (BioNachV) within the scope of a climate and energy program [BioNachV 2007]. The ordinance is to ensure that, in the generation of biomass for biofuels, (1) minimum requirements of a sustainable cultivation of agricultural areas are met, (2) the protection of natural biotopes is ensured, (3) biofuels provide a specific potential for reducing greenhouse gas emissions with regard to the entire production chain. The aim of the study is the determination of the greenhouse gas reduction potential as per the BioNachV ordinance for bioethanol made from wheat or rye for each of the VERBIO plants in Zörbig (MBE) and Schwedt (NBE), whereby two different variants must be taken into account for the Schwedt plant.
