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.
