The Biomass and Bioenergy Research Group (BBRG) will be hosting the workshops. Researchers across Canada, US and Europe will attend the event.
Workshop 1 (September 21, 2016)
Landscape Management and Design for Bioenergy and the Bioeconomy
Workshop participants will have the opportunity to share views and experiences and, in this way, provide a basis for identifying challenges and opportunities related to landscape management and design. A workshop outcome report is planned, which will summarize important concerns, knowledge gaps and research questions that should be followed up in subsequent activities.
Workshop 2 (September 22, 2016)
Mobilisation of Forest Biomass to Produce Bioenergy, Biofuels and Bioproducts: Challenges and Opportunities.
This event aims to bring together stakeholders from different countries to identify and discuss opportunities, challenges, best practices and knowledge gaps in the area of forest biomass mobilization for the sustainable production of bioenergy (including liquid fuels) and bioproducts. The workshop will be built around presenting real case studies concerning the deployment and the development of forest biomass supply chains. These case studies will be selected to cover a range of geographic regions, feedstocks, end-products and the maturity of project development, and a plenary discussion defining/highlighting the critical challenges, opportunities, and best practices.
The workshop will provide the material for drafting a report on best practices and recommendations for mobilization of forest biomass, to be published jointly by BioFuelNet and IEA Bioenergy.
