Abstract
The increase in temperature and drought associated with climate change raises many questions about the ability of boreal and temperate forests to adapt. For a forest species, such as white pine, are populations located further south, better adapted to the heat, able to survive northern winters? How do northern populations respond to increasing temperatures and drought? For some species, should we consider assisted migration from more southerly populations to the north? It is in this context that a study was conducted by Canadian Forest Service researchers at the Serge Légaré Arboretum in Valcartier.
Abstract
L’augmentation des températures et des épisodes de sécheresse associée aux changements climatiques suscite de nombreux questionnements sur la capacité d’adaptation des forêts boréales et tempérées. Pour une espèce forestière, tel le pin blanc, est-ce que les populations situées plus au sud, mieux adaptées à la chaleur, sont capables de survivre aux hivers du nord? Comment les populations du nord réagissent-elles à l’augmentation des températures et à la sécheresse? Pour certaines espèces, devrions-nous envisager la migration assistée des populations situées plus au sud vers le nord? C’est dans ce contexte qu’une étude a été menée par des chercheurs du Service canadien des forêts sur le site de l’arboretum Serge Légaré de Valcartier.

Abstract
It is well known that the forest biomass used to supply the energy sector must meet the quality standards of energy production facilities. These standards relate to moisture content (TH), particle size, fine particle content and degree of contamination. Customers have their own requirements, which sometimes differ from each other, and the supplier must meet them. The development of a payment system based on quality criteria and energy value seems obvious, but not everything is the obvious, but it is not that simple.
Abstract
Devant l’enjeu des changements climatiques, tous les secteurs d’activités sont appelés à faire leur part afin de diminuer les émissions de CO2. Il en est de même avec les activités en forêt. Les différents groupes de recherche en opérations forestières chez FPInnovations se sont penchés sur la question et proposent diverses options d’atténuation. Parmi celles-ci, on compte l’adoption de méthodes plus écoénergétiques de conduite de machinerie, l’utilisation de biocarburants et la réduction des résidus de coupe laissés en forêt. Mais comme on ne contrôle bien que ce qu’on mesure, ils ont tout d’abord mis au point des outils permettant de calculer les émissions de carbone issues des opérations forestières.

Abstract
The main objective of the present work is to respond to the second work area and complete LCAs focused on resource roads and transportation products and processes. Two LCA studies will be conducted; one study on resource road bridges and one study on hybridization of logging and biomass trucks. The present report undertakes an LCA of three resource road bridges.

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.

Abstract
During harvesting operations, soft soils with a reduced bearing capacity are susceptible to the creation of ruts. These can have negative consequences by altering the natural drainage and compacting the compacting the soil, which can lead to a loss of site productivity. site productivity. In a context of heavy rainfall or winter thaw, this vulnerability is accentuated and vulnerability is increased and mitigation measures are required. With collaborators in Abitibi, FPInnovations has studied various alternative alternative practices and developed a cost calculation tool that allows the to choose the least expensive option to reduce the presence and severity of ruts. ruts and their severity.
Abstract
Lors des opérations de récolte, les sols mous, à capacité portante réduite, sont sensibles à la création d’ornières. Celles-ci peuvent avoir des conséquences négatives en modifiant le drainage naturel et en compactant le sol, ce qui peut entraîner une perte de productivité du site. Dans un contexte de pluie abondante ou de dégel hivernal, cette vulnérabilité s’accentue et des mesures d’atténuation sont nécessaires. Avec des collaborateurs en Abitibi, FPInnovations a étudié différentes pratiques alternatives et développé un outil de calcul des coûts qui permet de choisir l’option la moins onéreuse afin de diminuer la présence d’ornières et leur gravité.

Abstract
This report reviews life cycle assessment (LCA) based regulatory approaches that have been adopted in several countries to evaluate and improve environmental impacts of cosntruction products and buildings. Recommendations are provided for incorporating LCA into Canadian regulations (including the National Building Code of Canada), and for enhancing building LCA guidelines to address principles of consistency, simplicity, and representative data which can improve the effectiveness of LCA to achieve regulatory objectives. This work supports the project need of guidance for performance-based design to accelerate the introduction of wood-based systems. The findings of this review can be used to help accelerate the adoption of life cycle-based regulations for buildings and infrastructure in Canada.
