Abstract
The Labrador Forest Management District (FMD) 19A with an annual allowable cut (AAC) of spruce from commercial harvest blocks of 165 000 m3/year is enough to meet the demand of a 40 M fbm/year sawmill (assuming sawmill efficiency factor of 4 m3/MFBM). The estimated average wood supply costs to access all the AAC wood from district 19A for Goose Bay is $58/m3 and Sheshatshiu at $63/m3 (9% price premium paid for wood deliveries to Sheshatshiu caused by the added transport distance of about 40 km per trip to complete the cycle time on average for truck loads). The scenario of a 40 M fmb/year sawmill would require at least 20 full time employees to run the wood supply chain and another 14 part time employees to build and maintain the road network.

Abstract
This report presents the development highlights for the BiOS app completed in 2018-2019 by FPI. An updated methodology is defined to help FLNRORD fully integrate the BiOS app data point collection into the Forest BioGis web platform. A visual roadside pile volume estimator was also developed and implemented into the BiOS app. This visual estimator will need to be calibrated and further developed with roadside pile recovery trials performed in various BC conditions. Finally, a four-year development plan is proposed to have a fully validated set of tools in the Forest BioGIS web platform and the BiOS app.

Abstract
We know that our forests are a key element in fighting climate change. In addition to sequestering carbon, their biomass can be used as a source of energy or raw material and a substitute for fossil fuel-based products. It is therefore not surprising that several projects involving bioenergy, biomaterials or biofuels are now emerging, placing forest biomass at the centre of the bio-economy. Significant investments are required to establish a forest biomass supply chain. Any medium or large project needs a feasibility study to address fundamental issues such as long-term supply guarantees, competitive costs and financing considerations. FPInnovations has developed the tools and expertise to conduct this type of study and ensure that projects are viable in the long term.

Abstract
Les visites réalisées dans le cadre de cette étude ont permis d’établir une structure afin de quantifier le coût d’installation des ouvrages traditionnels (ponceaux) et amovibles (ouvrages dont les appuis sont situés en dehors de la limite supérieure de la berge) en lien avec le RADF. Dans ce contexte, il a été possible de proposer une feuille de calcul permettant d’estimer le coût des ouvrages traditionnels et amovibles. Toutefois, le nombre limité d’observations ne permet pas de tirer de conclusions définitives sur les coûts de ces ouvrages dans plusieurs conditions d’installation.

Abstract
The general objective of this guide is to assess the economic benefits of BMPs on feedstock quality and process improvement for the bioenergy sector. This guide is based on the publication Biomass Management: Effective Management Techniques for Biomass Piles to Secure Access to Quality Feedstock (Technical Report no. 8 - January 2017), a summary of published literature focusing on characteristics and management of comminuted (hogged) and roundwood forest biomass, Previous studies undertaken and some of the practical experience of FPInnovations staff have been incorporated.

Abstract
The growing bioenergy industry is using more and more forest biomass. The logistics of supply and and storage are becoming more complex and innovative and innovative solutions are needed to improve the quality of the raw material. The type of biomass available is quite variable and comes from different sources (stump, roadside, transfer yard, mill) and is from the roadside, from the transshipment area, from the plant) and comes in different formats (wood chips, bark, fine particles, tops, branches tops, branches, low grade logs). The quality of the biomass quality is critical to many bioenergy processes production processes; therefore, sound practices are required to ensure practices are needed to ensure access to quality biomassquality biomass at all times.
Abstract
L’industrie de la bioénergie, en pleine croissance, utilise de plus en plus de biomasse forestière. La logistique des approvisionnements et de l'entreposage se complexifie et il faut des solutions innovantes pour améliorer la qualité de la matière première. Le type de biomasse disponible est assez variable et provient de différentes sources (de la souche, du bord de route, de l’aire de transbordement, de l’usine) et se présente en différents formats (copeaux de bois, écorces, particules fines, cimes, branches, billes de qualité inférieure). La qualité de la biomasse est essentielle pour bien des procédés de production de bioénergie; c’est pourquoi de saines pratiques sont nécessaires pour garantir un accès à de la biomasse de qualité en tout temps.

Abstract
It is well known: our forests are an essential key to the fight against climate change. In addition to sequestering carbon, the use of its biomass as a source of energy or as a raw material allows for the substitution of fossil fuel-based products. It is therefore not surprising that several bioenergy, biomaterials or biofuels projects are emerging, thus placing forest biomass in the bioeconomy.

C’est connu : nos forêts sont une clé essentielle à la lutte aux changements climatiques. En plus de séquestrer du carbone, l’utilisation de sa biomasse comme source d’énergie ou comme matière première permet de substituer des produits à base de combustibles fossiles. Il n’est donc pas surprenant que plusieurs projets de bioénergie, de biomatériaux ou de biocarburants émergent, plaçant ainsi la biomasse forestière dans le giron de la bioéconomie.

Abstract
As forest-origin biomass use has increased, logistics of supply and storage become more complex and innovative solutions are required to improve feedstock quality for the growing bioenergy industry. The variety of feedstocks available is quite complex, with multiple feedstocks coming from different streams (at-the-stump, roadside, transfer yard, mill) and accessible under different formats (wood chips, bark, fines, tops, and branches or low grade logs). The quality of biomass is critical for many bioenergy processes and best management practices (BMPs) are required to guarantee access to quality feedstocks at any given time
Abstract
Avec l'augmentation de l'utilisation de la biomasse d'origine forestière, la logistique de l'approvisionnement et du stockage devient plus complexe et des solutions innovantes sont nécessaires pour améliorer la qualité des matières premières pour l'industrie croissante de la bioénergie. La variété des matières premières disponibles est assez complexe, avec de multiples matières premières provenant de différents flux (à la souche, au bord de la route, au chantier de transfert, à l'usine) et accessibles sous différents formats (copeaux de bois, écorce, fines, cimes et branches ou billes de qualité inférieure). La qualité de la biomasse est essentielle pour de nombreux processus bioénergétiques et les meilleures pratiques de gestion (MPG) sont nécessaires pour garantir l'accès à des matières premières de qualité à tout moment.
