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.
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.
L’objectif général de ce guide consiste à évaluer les avantages économiques des pratiques exemplaires de gestion sur la qualité et l’amélioration des procédés entourant la biomasse pour le secteur de la bioénergie.
