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. Includes Excel data sheet which is saved separately at \\fpinnovations.lan\structure\Commun_Common\Publications\FOP/2017N38.XLSX

Abstract
Current forest management policy in many jurisdictions in North America manages excess woody debris by piling and burning it, mainly as a post-harvest fire hazard abatement obligation. This study highlights three key points to consider regarding utilization and disposal of waste wood piles: 1) Allocate most woody debris waste to the biofuels sector in a cost-effective manner; 2) Allocate a small portion of woody debris (e.g. 10-15%) to implement windrow habitats where necessary to maintain mammalian biodiversity on clearcuts; 3) Limit burning of waste wood to those sites near human activity (potential fire hazard) that do not have an opportunity for biofuels or windrow purposes.

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
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
Les communautés éloignées et isolées du Nord-du-Québec, accessibles que par bateau ou par voie aérienne, utilisent presque exclusivement le mazout pour combler leurs besoins énergétiques. Les systèmes de chauffage de plusieurs bâtiments communautaires, institutionnels ou commerciaux présentent un fort potentiel pour la conversion à la biomasse forestière résiduelle. Toutefois, un défi d’approvisionnement se pose: comment fournir une matière première convenant à leur équipement? Et surtout, sous quelle forme l’expédier et l’entreposer pour conserver ses qualités?

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.
