${session.getAttribute("locale")} 5 Estimating potential harvestable biomass for bioenergy from sustainably managed private native forests in Southeast Queensland, Australia Tue 01 May 2018 11:27:48 AEST ]]> The Potential Supply of Biomass for Energy from Hardwood Plantations in the Sunshine Coast Council Region of South-East Queensland, Australia ha) Gympie Messmate (Eucalyptus cloeziana) monocultures. Plantation age-class and corresponding area, productivity and management history findings and informed harvest-related assumptions underpin a 20-year forecast of biomass yields from a suggested plantation harvest schedule. The biomass yields are underbark stem-wood quantities assumed to be unmerchantable for higher-value solid-wood products. Future thinning (at age 12 years) and clearfell harvests (age 25 years) could provide minimum woody biomass yields of 30 and 108 GMt/ha respectively. Closer to 200 GMt/ha may be available from clearfell harvests of poorly-managed farm forestry plantations. The forecast annually available biomass supply is highly variable and mostly of small quantities. Biomass energy plants seeking a sustainable supply of feedstock must therefore access additional locally-available waste biomass. Further research is required to identify and quantify these sources. Field trials are also required to understand better the likely product mixes and available volumes of biomass for energy from the region’s various hardwood plantations and to test for efficient integrated biomass harvest and supply chain systems for the sizes and terrains that are characteristic of these plantations.]]> Thu 20 Jun 2019 16:55:40 AEST ]]> Small-Scale Biomass Energy Systems: A report on the potential for industry development in the Sunshine Coast Region, South-East Queensland Thu 14 Feb 2019 12:50:30 AEST ]]> The potential for a small-scale biomass energy industry on the sunshine coast based on locally-available waste wood Thu 14 Feb 2019 12:50:27 AEST ]]> Social preferences toward energy generation with woody biomass from public forests in Montana, USA Fri 28 Apr 2017 10:18:14 AEST ]]>
