July 11, 2014 - As discussed in previous articles the large residual biomass (10 million odt) will require government and industry working together to encourage the eventual phasing out of cull pile burning. In the meantime small local projects will provide some valueable information on the use of the non-saw log material as well as employing locals.
For remote communities considering green energy projects there are two sources that should be consulted. The first one is "An information Guide on Pursuing Biomass Opportunities and Technology in BC." The second one is "Green Heat Initiatives small scale biomass district heating handbook for Alberta and BC. March 2014."
