Residuals & Forest Biomass for Energy

The life cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) implications of using various manufacturing and forest biomass residuals for energy production at pulp and paper mills and wood products manufacturing facilities depends on a variety of factors. Over the years, NCASI has undertaken a series of analyses evaluating these implications and has published a variety of studies addressing information gaps in this area. These resources have helped our Member Companies work with their stakeholders to identify opportunities for the forest sector to enhance the use of these residuals rather than sending them for disposal.
