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 increased forest biomass feedstock supply – a comparative assessment of technological solutions’ in the International Journal of Forest Engineering is now available open access:

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.
