Southern Research Station: Increasing Our Knowledge Of Woody Biomass Harvesting

U.S. Forest Service research helped the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests move forward in implementing a new forest plan by setting up studies to address stakeholder concerns about the effects of harvesting for biomass feedstocks. The Lower Cowpasture Restoration and Management Project proposed for the Warm Springs Ranger District and the George Washington and […]

Study: Woody Biomass Could Save Money, Environment

Researchers at Humboldt State University put woody biomass in the spotlight as a viable alternative energy source at a demonstration today for the public, which is part of the Waste to Wisdom program. Researchers said that the by-products of trees, such as fallen branches, twigs and limbs could potentially help residents in the North Coast […]

Louisiana Wood Pellet Plants Cater To Europe’s Energy Needs

Louisiana, an oil-and-gas state, is half covered by timber, making forest products a big business. Companies including Drax Biomass, Biomass Secure Power and German Pellets GmbH plan to churn out wood pellets from new plants here to meet Europe’s need for electricity and heat provided by renewable fuels. With its trees, waterways and ports, Louisiana […]

Report: Woody Biomass Proving A Cost-Effective Energy Solution

Woody biomass is quietly expanding as a viable, cost-effective energy alternative to fossil fuels in America. Though this natural, renewable and locally produced resource will never supply all of our nation’s energy needs, when operated in concert with sustainable forest management, it can be an effective energy option in both rural and urban areas. Energy-efficient […]

IRENA: Biomass Could Provide 20% Of World’s Energy By 2030

Renewable energy generated by biomass – from wood to agricultural waste – could provide a fifth of the world’s energy needs by 2030, according to a new analysis. The report, from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), forecasts “an auspicious future” for the biomass sector, suggesting such sources could generate as much as 60% of […]
