Energy Management

Reducing energy use is an important goal for the forest products sector. The industry makes extensive use of efficient combined heat and power (CHP) systems, often fueled by carbon neutral biomass, to supply steam and electricity to drive their processes. It is important that these CHP systems are accurately characterized in greenhouse gas‐related initiatives.
