Australian researchers score grant for forestry waste bioenergy research

February 13, 2020 |

In Australia, pine plantations from Gympie to Bundaberg will be at the center of research to turn logging offcuts and treetops into bioenergy and other bio-based products. The joint project between University of the Sunshine Coast’s Forest Industries Research Centre and Queensland’s largest forest plantation owner, HQPlantations, has received a A$50,000 research grant from the Queensland Government’s A$5 million Waste to Biofutures fund. The two-year study aims to develop viable alternatives for timber waste left behind from annual log harvests of more than 1.25 million tons from the Fraser Coast plantation estate.
