Abstract
Spontaneous combustion of hog piles can result in inventory losses and potential damage to surrounding infrastructure and equipment. In April and June 2016, FPInnovations and Terminal Forest Product Ltd. conducted a study to investigate the use of thermal infra-red digital cameras to examine the thermal dynamics of a coastal hog fuel pile. They also investigated the feasibility of using thermal imaging to help develop better fire risk mitigation solutions.

Abstract
Natural gas trucks have been around for a long time, but recent technological improvements and improvements in technology and increases in the cost of diesel fuel have created a interest in these vehicles. In addition to potential cost savings, natural gas trucks potential cost savings, natural gas trucks can reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by up to 25% compared to diesel. Thanks to recent developments in natural gas extraction processes, North American reserves have North American reserves have increased dramatically and better prices are now possible in the prices are now possible in the long term.
Abstract
Les camions au gaz naturel ne datent pas d’hier, mais les récentes améliorations technologiques et les hausses du coût du diesel ont créé un regain d’intérêt pour ces véhicules. En plus d’offrir des économies de coût potentielles, les camions au gaz naturel peuvent réduire les émissions de gaz à effet de serre (GES) jusqu’à 25% par rapport au diesel. Grâce aux récents développements dans les procédés d’extraction du gaz naturel, les réserves nord-américaines ont augmenté de façon marquée et des prix plus avantageux sont maintenant envisageables à long terme.

Abstract
Over the past few years, the constant rise in the price of fuel has prompted the development of new technologies to reduce fuel consumption. To address this concern heavy equipment manufacturers have been introducing new models integrating technologies, such as the diesel-electric hybrid suggesting improved fuel efficiency. In order to validate these claims FPInnovations has developed a methodology aimed at conducting controlled tests to measure fuel consumption. Tests were conducted on three different models of bulldozers of the same power class in order to compare their fuel consumption and energy efficiency. The evaluation of these three bulldozers was carried out on a controlled test track where standardized working conditions were reproduced. This report presents the findings of these tests conducted in Chipman, New Brunswick, in cooperation with J.D. Irving Limited. The test had three main objectives: 1) develop a standardized procedure to measure the fuel consumption of the bulldozers in a controlled environment; 2) compare the fuel consumption of three different models (drive trains) of bulldozers (electric, hydrostatic and standard) for a typical work cycle; and 3) quantify the variation in fuel consumption resulting from the differences between the engine/drive train technologies of the test machines.

Abstract
Wildfire is a natural phenomenon in Canada that threatens to destroy property and endanger lives. Wildfire agencies are tasked with reducing the threat of wildfire in the wildland-urban interface, which becomes a greater issue as more communities locate near or within forests or become more populated. Forest fuel treatments that reduce or modify forest stands are the most common and effective methods to reduce wildfire danger around communities. However, convincing the public to support forest fuel treatments around their communities can be a challenge for wildfire managers. Understandably, communities want some assurance that what they are committing to will make a difference. One of the many benefits of forest fuel treatments is thought to be an increase in the effectiveness of wildfire operations.

Abstract
Since the cost of fuel is an important factor in the use of off-road equipment, it is to the advantage of every machine owner to make the most of this necessary expense. Certain work habits and operational factors influence fuel consumption. Recent trials conducted by FPInnovations researchers have explored some ways to improve fuel intensity and measure the savings.
Abstract
Puisque le coût du carburant est un facteur important dans l’utilisation des équipements hors route, il est à l’avantage de tout propriétaire de machine de tirer le maximum de cette dépense nécessaire. Certaines habitudes de travail et facteurs opérationnels ont une influence sur la consommation de carburant. De récents essais menés par les chercheurs de FPInnovations ont permis d’explorer certaines pistes d’amélioration de l’intensité énergétique et de mesurer les économies.

Abstract
Despite the oscillations in the price of fuel at the pump, it continues to rise. Five years ago, fuel accounted for 30% of transportation costs. Today, that proportion is estimated to be at least 40%, and the forecasts are not optimistic. It is therefore crucial to look at the factors that can influence fuel consumption and and how to reduce it. The team of researchers from the Transportation and Energy program of FPInnovations program is working on this issue and is analyzing various possible solutions.
Abstract
Malgré les oscillations du prix du carburant à la pompe, ce dernier ne cesse d’augmenter. Il y a cinq ans, le carburant représentait 30% des coûts de transport. Aujourd’hui, cette proportion est estimée à au moins 40 %, et les prévisions ne sont pas optimistes. Il est donc crucial de regarder les facteurs qui peuvent influencer la consommation de carburant et les moyens de la réduire. L’équipe de chercheurs du programme Transport et Énergie de FPInnovations travaille sur la question et analyse différentes pistes de solutions.

Abstract
The Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada (FERIC) undertook a project for Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) to study the transportation of hog fuel from source to consumption site. In particular, FERIC gathered information from companies engaged in the supply, transportation, or use of hog fuel through direct visits or questionnaires. This report presents the types and costs of the various modes of transportation used—specifically truck, rail, and barge—and the advantages and disadvantages of each.
