Forest Biomass Feedstock Workshop
The potential of forest biomass as a source of renewable energy has resulted in increased demand for this material which can include tops and branches of trees left after timber harvests, poor quality trees, trees removed during land clearing operations, and wood residues produced by sawmills.
Feb. 24, 2009 Fundy Model Forest hosted a workshop to examine issues related to the sustainable supply of biomass from New Brunswick forests. The workshop provided information, described tools to predict the availability of sustainable supplies of biomass feedstock and identified gaps in knowledge that need to be investigated.
The full workshop agenda is available here.
