From Unloved Woods to Desirable bioenergy: The Digest’s 2018 Multi-Slide Guide to wood and forest projects

October 7, 2018 |

Increasing global demand for energy, a push by governments and industry to reduce greenhouse gases (GHG), and a desire to increase energy independence are driving the demand for renewable alternatives to fossil fuels. As a source of renewable carbon that can be used in the existing energy infrastructure, woody biomass is an attractive feedstock for the production of bioenergy (meant here to include biomass- based energy carriers in solid, gaseous and liquid forms) in the form of heat, power and liquid transportation biofuels. A key feedstock for bioenergy is woody biomass, which is defined by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to include surplus forest growth that could potentially be harvested over and above current harvesting rates while still remaining within the sustainable harvest rate of the forest.

This presentation was given by researcher Evelyn Thiffault as part of an IEA Bioenergy workshop.
