Abstract
Innovative technologies for recovering woody biomass have the potential to reduce production costs and increase the utilization of biomass in the field. FPInnovations, in collaboration with the Canadian Wood Fibre Centre, evaluated the potential of the Gyro-Trac bioenergy baling system (BBS) to process timber-harvesting residues into commercial biomass. This evaluation occurred between January and March 2015 in the Saddle Hills of Alberta which are located approximately 125 km northwest of Grande Prairie. This report describes the machine’s productivity while processing small deciduous decks and conifer debris piles resulting from the salvage of mountain pine beetle impacted stands.

Abstract
This info note discusses the fibre characteristics of the feedstock created and baled by the Gyro-Trac Biomass Baling System, the degree of feedstock contamination, and potential uses for the material. The uniform and smaller than conventional chip size, combined with low contaminants and reduced moisture content over 1 year of storage make the Gyro-Trac a promising tool for the creation of high-quality products such as pellets and CHP systems.

Abstract
Compared to slower growing trees like spruces, hybrid poplars and selected aspens grown in these plantations are ready for harvest in less than 20 years. The technology development specialists established this a mixed wood crop to evaluate how short-rotation or fast-growing tree crops (123 to 17 years to maturity) could sustain and expand the bioenergy sector. High-yield crops like these are crucial for the sector, which relies on woody biomass to produce clean energy.
