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
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.
Abstract
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.
