Webinar 20: Biomass Trade Centres – Mobilising Irelands bioenergy resources to meet the climate challenge

For the past 30 years the Irish government and land owners have invested heavily in establishing a national forest estate. The forest inventory is vital for the provision of sustainable building materials such as lumber. Major by-products of this industry are ideal for use as renewable fuel. By products such as sawdust and bark originating from sawmills is ideal for large scale woodchip and wood pellet supply. Sustainable Forest management practices produce large quantities of thinning's and brash that can deliver significant value to the private forest owner. European private owners have established co-operative structures to trade their by-product materials such as thinning's, which are processed into useful products such as firewood and woodchip. These structures allow for greater financial control of their forest resource. In this webinar, IrBEA will look at some of these models and see if they can be adopted for Irish conditions.
