Advancing the forest biomass inventory for Eastern Ontario

March 7, 2009

On March 7th, in partnership with the Ministry of Natural Resources, the Sustainable Bioeconomy Centre hosted a one-day workshop on Queen’s University campus to investigate Forest Biomass Inventory. The presentations examined not only what wood the forests hold, but also the technology available to do inventory now and in the near future. Presenters and participants also discussed the varied priorities of scientific researchers and those who harvest the resource, and considered how inventory plays a role in guiding use of forest biomass for electricity generation.
