LOGGING UTILIZATION AND BIOMASS



Northwest Advanced Renewables Alliance (NARA)

BBER is a participant in two phases of the NARA project: Feedstock Supply Chain Analysis and Extension Initiative. Woody biomass supply analysis is a necessary component of the NARA proposal. In order to ascertain the social, economic, and environmental impacts and sustainability of producing new wood-based energy products, the potential supply of woody biomass feedstock from various sources will be evaluated. The specific objectives of the Feedstock Supply Chain Analysis Phase are to identify and provide the primary data necessary to assess the woody biomass inventory with particular emphasis on mill and logging residue in the 4-state region and standing forest inventory in Montana and Idaho.

The Northwest Advanced Renewables Alliance (NARA) project was supported by the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative Competitive Grant no. 2011-68005-30416 from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
