Publication: Sustainability impacts of increased forest biomass feedstock supply

Sustainably managed forests provide renewable raw material that can be used for primary/secondary conversion products and as biomass for energy generation. This paper Tuomasjukka et al from EFI evaluated the economic, environmental and social sustainability impacts of making the potentially available timber available with current and technologically improved value chains. Their publication ‘Sustainability impacts of […]

Field test: Controlling of cable yarding operations

BOKU and Konrad are working on enabling advanced operation progress monitoring and performance evaluation through pooling sensor information on cable yarders. The first field test has taken place during a downhill yarding operation with a Konrad Mounty 4000 yarder to test the system under real-life conditions, contributing to work package 3 – harvesting. Stay informed […]

Publication: Spatial distribution of the potential forest biomass availability in Europe

European forests are considered a crucial resource for supplying biomass to a growing bio-economy in Europe. This study aimed to assess the potential availability of forest biomass from European forests and its spatial distribution. We tried to answer the questions (i) how is the potential forest biomass availability spatially distributed across Europe and (ii) where […]
