Wood for Bioenergy: Forests as a Resource for Biomass and Biofuels (Forest History Society Issues)
Today, as much of the world seeks to reduce dependence on fossil fuels, energy companies and nations alike are turning once again to our oldest renewable energy resource- wood. But using wood for bioenergy and biofuels is not without its issues. Of primary concern is if the wood needed for those purposes can be secured on a sustainable basis. And without sizeable subsidies, it is not yet cost effective to convert wood to liquid fuel at a commercial scale. Other issues include the relation between biomass harvesting and carbon emissions, evaluating supply chain systems for energy markets, and the effect subsidies can have on the price of wood. By reviewing the historical context and contemporary issues surrounding this topic, Wood for Bioenergy provides a primer for teachers, policymakers, energy producers, landowners, forest managers, and journalists on this critical energy source. This book is part of the Forest History Society's Issue Series. This book was published by the Forest History Society with support from the Plum Creek Foundation, U.S. Forest Service Research, Forest Investment Associates, National Alliance of Forest Owners, Potlatch Corporation, Price Biostock, the Westervelt Company, and the Lynn W. Day Endowment for Forest History Publications.
