Studying Woody Biomass For Energy Across The U.S.

Woody biomass includes stems, small branches, treetops, needles, leaves, and sometimes the roots of trees and shrubs. These materials are byproducts of forest management activities such as thinning, but they can also be a valuable source of bioenergy. Five U.S. Forest Service Southern Research Station (SRS) scientists – John Stanturf, Emile Gardiner, Leslie Groom, Dana […]

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 […]

Update: U.S. Forest Service Supports Wood Pellet Bioenergy

The manufacture of wood pellet bioenergy might increase demand for renewable energy from US forests and boost prices, even if questions about increasing CO2 emissions remain without clear answers. According to a recent US Forest Service study, current policies in the European Union (EU) and elsewhere requiring the use of renewable and low greenhouse gas-emitting […]

Wood2Energy Database Provides Latest Information On Biomass Facilities

Just last year, archaeologists found evidence that pre-humans burned wood as long ago as two million years. Since prehistoric times, people have relied on wood for fuel. In recent years, there’s been growing interest in using woody biomass, a renewable energy source, as an alternative to fossil fuel. The Wood2Energy project grew from the need […]

North Carolina: A Bioenergy Case Study

State and Federal policies on renewable energy will, to a great extent, drive demand for wood-to-energy biomass feedstocks. Across the United States, 29 states and the District of Columbia have adopted renewable portfolio standards (RPS) mandating that a certain percent of the state’s energy come from renewable sources by a certain date. In the South, […]
