Abstract
Forest-origin biomass estimates were made by FPInnovations for a location in Northern Alberta, largely following the process previously established for six BC Timber Supply Areas using FPInterface (2010 13). The biomass inventory was based on 20-year harvest and road network plans for Crown land provided by Alberta Agriculture and Forestry as well as local forest tenure holders.

Abstract
Biomass sampling and analysis play decisive roles in determining the characteristics and value of the woody biomass fuel used in bioenergy systems in Canada. Sampling and analysis standards help harmonize the procedures that are used to monitor biomass quality. Because there are no Canada- wide biomass sampling standards, facilities that produce and use woody biomass have developed and implemented in-house sampling procedures of varying degrees of complexity. Given that the use of woody biomass in Canada is predicted to increase, the ability to ensure the quality of biomass will become increasingly important in order to control costs and maximize system efficiency.

Abstract
L’échantillonnage et l’analyse de la biomasse jouent un rôle décisif dans la détermination des caractéristiques et de la valeur des combustibles de biomasse ligneuse utilisés dans les systèmes de bioénergie au Canada. Les normes d’échantillonnage et d’analyse contribuent à harmoniser les méthodes utilisées pour évaluer la qualité de la biomasse. Il n’existe pas de normes d’échantillonnage pancanadiennes; les usines qui produisent ou utilisent la biomasse ligneuse ont donc élaboré et appliqué des méthodes d’échantillonnage maison de niveau de complexité variable. Comme on prévoit une augmentation de l’utilisation de la biomasse ligneuse au Canada, les compétences permettant de garantir sa qualité deviendront de plus en plus importantes pour limiter les coûts et maximiser l’efficacité des systèmes.

Abstract
This study addressed biomass availability, harvesting, transportation, and chipping costs for the production of bioenergy in the Teslin region of Yukon. It revealed that significant volumes of standing timber below 20 cm in diameter at breast height (DBH) exist that could be utilized for bioenergy. These volumes, however, would sustain only small electricity generation capacities; however, a more efficient solution would be to utilize the biomass in district heating applications. The study also estimated harvesting, transportation, and chipping costs of low- and high-mechanized systems. These costs will have to be further validated and incorporated into an investment calculator to assess the feasibility of future bioenergy projects in Teslin.

Abstract
Woody biomass heating projects are becoming more and more numerous in Quebec and the trend is not decreasing. In this context, the skills to guarantee the quality of the biomass will become more and more important in order to limit costs and maximize the efficiency of the systems. There is a frequent mismatch between the biomass delivered and the desired characteristics for the various bioenergy processes. Forestry companies supplying woody biomass as well as bioenergy producers need to be more aware of biomass quality criteria. To assist these companies, FPInnovations researchers have been working on this issue.
Abstract
Les projets de chauffage à la biomasse ligneuse sont de plus en plus nombreux au Québec et la tendance n’est pas à la baisse. Dans ce contexte, les compétences permettant de garantir la qualité de la biomasse deviendront de plus en plus importantes afin de limiter les coûts et de maximiser l’efficacité des systèmes. Une disparité fréquente entre la biomasse livrée et les caractéristiques souhaitée pour les divers procédés de bioénergie est observée. Les entreprises forestières qui fournissent de la biomasse ligneuse ainsi que les producteurs de bioénergie se doivent de mieux connaître les critères de qualité de la biomasse. Pour venir en aide à ces entreprises, des chercheurs de FPInnovations se sont penchés sur la question.

Abstract
The demand for forest biomass for bioenergy production is increasing worldwide. Industrial residues (bark, sawdust and black liquor) and, to a lesser extent, logging residues (tree branches and tops) are currently the main sources of supply. However, forest disturbances such as fires and insect outbreaks could make large quantities of biomass available. Several Canadian Forest Service (CFS) researchers are working on projects related to the recovery of wood from disturbances for bioenergy purposes.
Abstract
La demande de biomasse forestière pour la production de bioénergie est en augmentation à l’échelle mondiale. Les résidus de l’industrie (écorces, sciures et liqueur noire) et, dans une moindre mesure, les résidus de coupe forestière (branches et cimes des arbres) en sont présentement les principales sources d’approvisionnement. Les perturbations forestières comme les feux et les épidémies d’insectes pourraient toutefois rendre disponibles de grandes quantités de biomasse. Plusieurs chercheurs du Service canadien des forêts (SCF) travaillent sur des projets en lien avec la récupération des bois de perturbations à des fins bioénergétiques.

Abstract
CCUS for the Pulp and Paper Industry Webinars – Session 2, Video 3, a presentation by Philippe Navarri
The urgency of climate change mitigation and the increased interest in circular economy are driving interest in opportunities to capture CO2 from industrial sites or the atmosphere for sequestration or the development of sustainable products. It is now well admitted that carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) is an essential option to achieve our 2050 net-zero emissions objectives. Because the majority of CO2 emissions in pulp and paper mills is biogenic, capturing this CO2 is considered a net CO2 removal from the atmosphere. Therefore, the pulp and sector can play a critical role in helping Canada achieve its net-zero emission objective. Although CCS has the potential to deliver much larger CO2 emissions reductions, CCU is expected to play a critical role where there is limited storage capacity, in decarbonizing of hard-to-abate sectors such as aviation and maritime transportation, and in the production of "greener" products as an alternative option to replace products that would otherwise be fossil-based. A wide range of CO2 utilization technologies exist to produce a variety of value-added products including chemicals, fuels, polymers and construction materials that are often seen as a new revenue stream for the industry. In this webinar, a review of CO2 utilization opportunities to produce value-added "green" products (e.g. alcohols, fuels etc.) will be presented, their attractiveness assessed, and key aspects to consider for their implementation will be discussed.
