Forest energy for a sustainable future

A new report by the Forestry Research Institute of Sweden (Skogforsk) has been released summarising their research on efficient forest fuel supply chains. 

Skogforsk has devoted much research time into the collection and use of forest biomass for energy. This report, titled “Forest energy for a sustainable future”, is a comprehensive and professional look at research across the entire forest fuel supply chain from 2011 to 2015.

The research includes; fuel characteristics and measurement; best practices for planning and management of supply systems; different types of forest fuels and harvest systems; fuel production systems, focusing on grinding and chipping materials; and optimising the transport and logistics of forest fuels.
