Cultural treatment of selected species for woody biomass fuel production in the Pacific Northwest. Four-year summary report. College of Forest Resources, University of Washington--Mechanical Engineering Division, City Light, Seattle. Schiess, P.

l Harvesting Equipment and Cost Analysis for plantations. Technical Report. In the southeastern U.S., short-rotation woody crops are a significant part of a growing renewable energy supply. A USDA Forest Service study examines how growing different tree species for bioenergy may have impacts on water yield.

“Loblolly pine has long been considered the go-to woody bioenergy species in the South,” says Peter Caldwell, research hydrologist. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station. 45 p. Woody biomass can be used for the generation of heat, electricity, and biofuels.

In many cases, the technology for converting woody biomass into energy has been established for decades, but because the price of woody biomass energy has notCited by:   Species associated with open habitats are more common on plantations in predominately open, agricultural landscapes.

In the Pacific Northwest, fewer bird species and individuals occur on plantations imbedded in large areas of pastureland than those adjacent to natural forests or that are part of larger aggregates of by: [Show full abstract] and cultural treatments on fertility and biomass production; (3) assess the occurrence and effects of pests that may be associated with plantation management; (4) evaluate the.

2 vols. College for For. Res., U. of Wash., Seattle, WA, Completed under Contract to Seattle City Light. Short rotation intensive culture (SRIC) plantations were analyzed to determine a least-cost method of supplying feedstock for liquid fuel manufacturing.

The plantations were based uponPopulus hybrid, nonfertilized and fertilized strategies and a spacing of 21, trees/ha. Financial analyses indicated a 3-y rotation would minimize production costs for the particular design of these plantations. Bernard R. Parresol's 43 research works with 1, citations and 3, reads, including: Modeling the Diameter Distributions of Brutian Pine Stands Using Johnson's SB Distribution.

Production levels achieved to date with various hybrid poplar (Populus) clones are also in the range of 20–25 Mg ha −1 year −1 of dry woody biomass. As in agricultural crops, these high yield figures and the overall success of the short-rotation intensive culture with hybrid poplars result from the optimization of the interactions between.

In the United States, the production of woody biomass from plantations is regionally influenced (Vance et al. ), with the majority of feedstocks from the Pacific Northwest with million acres of plantations mostly consisting of Douglas-fir but also poplar, alder, ponderosa pine, and western hemlock (Stanturf and Zhang.

The diversity, structure, species composition, and above ground biomass of woody plants on Ngomakurira mountain in Zimbabwe were studied. A systematic random sampling approach was adopted to establish 52 sampling plots measuring 10 × 10 m across 3 study strata in the ha study area.

Woody species occurring in each plot were identified and the circumferences of trees with diameters. Forest Biodiversity and Woody Biomass Harvesting a review Presentation from the U.S. Department of Energy s Bioeconomy Conference, held July.

Goals / Objectives The overall goal of this project is to ready the Pacific Northwest (PNW) for a introduction of a % infrastructure compatible biofuels industry that meets the region's pro-rata share of Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS2) targets using sustainably grown regionally appropriate woody energy crops, thereby helping to revitalize the region's agriculture/forestry sectors with.

of the paucity of relevant research information on woody biomass production in the southwest, the immediate aim of this project was to select from a large number of candidate species and varieties, those able to efficiently produce biomass under the region's environmental constraints.

We refer to. Growth and stand biomass production. Poplar SRC behaviour differed significantly according to the treatment. Biomass yield patterns for the three rotation cycles are shown in Fig.

The first difference was the duration of the stand, which was only 7 years under the annual rotation and 12 years under the T2 and T3 harvest regimes. Progress was made toward establishing two sites to study the effect of cultural treatment on two selected species, black cottonwood and red alder, for woody biomass production.

The first study area (the dry site), located on the City of Seattle's Cedar River Watershed, at North Bend, Washington, was established and put into production during.

identification characteristics used to key the species in the summer. A number of field-tested traits have been listed to help with identification of these species during the winter months. Field Guide for the Identification and Use of Common Riparian Woody Plants of the Intermountain West and Pacific Northwest Regions Index Acer Bitter, The life cycle impacts were determined for poplar-managed four ways in the Pacific Northwest of the United States.

Two sites had 3-yr rotations and either no irrigation (Site 1) or irrigation with river water (Site 2). The other sites had yr rotations and irrigation with wastewater from a treatment facility (Site 3) or irrigation with landfill leachate (Site 4).

Hemicellulose makes up 25 to 35% of the dry weight of woody biomass. Lignin: Lignin is a polymer (or glue-like substance) that holds cellulose and hemicellulose together.

It makes up approximately 15 to 25 percent of the dry weight of woody biomass and is what can make the biochemical conversion of woody biomass difficult. Title: Microsoft Word - Example Woody Biomass Study Table of Author: paulw Created Date: 7/7/ PM.

The national and regional perspectives on bioenergy from woody biomass, available woody biomass resources, the tools for evaluating biomass resources, bioenergy production, and the barriers to biomass utilization in the western USA, are discussed.

A fourth-generation E. grandis seed orchard could produce over million seedlings. All woody biomass fuels qualified under the APS must meet the criteria for Clean Wood (as defined in CMRdefinitions) and be from verifiably sustainable forest-derived and non-forest derived fuels are potentially eligible for inclusion within the APS.

The objective of feedstock research by OFD is to develop low-cost lignocellulosic biomass to be used for ethanol and coproduct conversion. This objective is to be achieved by (1) developing agricultural and silvicultural systems for the efficient production, harvesting, and handling of perennial crop biomass from different regions of the United States; (2) improving the yield and quality of.

Section ting alternative technologies for wood bioenergy facilities Key topics Liquid biofuels from woody biomass Adaptation of existing wood processing plants for joint production (e.g., pulp/paper mills re-engineered to produce paper and biofuels). The allometric model. Across vascular plants with woody stems and roots, prior allometric models predict that standing leaf biomass M L should scale as the 3/4 power of standing stem biomass M S, that M L should scale as the 3/4 power of standing root biomass M R, and that M R will scale in direct proportion with respect to M ore, across woody plants, and M S = (β 1 /β) 4/3 M R.

Progress 08/01/12 to 07/31/17 Outputs Target Audience:Target audiences for this research are scientists, land managers, policy makers and public interests groups interested in the impacts of biomass removal from forested lands for the purpose of bioenergy production.

The topics surounding forest biomass and woody bioenergy production are of intense interest to those managers trying to improve. total aboveground biomass was done •Largely limited to reports including growth curves in order to determine if biomass yields represented maximum MAI or CAI – Made exception for very high density plantings •Data inclusion was selective and subjective – Good and optimal production conditions – Treatment & controls from well documented.

These DBH targets were randomly assigned to a plot and the tree closest to the target DBH was selected from the buffer rows. Proximity to desired DBH and ease of felling were factors for tree selection.

Four trees per species, treatment, and site were selected for biomass determination (32 trees at the CR site, 16 trees at the CF site). changes. A survey of woody biomass business owners in the upper Midwest Lakes States and Pacific Northwest was conducted in The purpose was to gain insight into the decision making process of these businesses along the wood energy supply chain, which consists of.

biomass energy production activity and the potential contribution biomass resources and technologies can make toward meeting the nation's energy demands. This is the fourth edition of the Biomass Energy Data Book and it is only available online in electronic format.

Because there are many diverse online sources of biomass information, the Data Book. • Production Costs: Biomass yields and production costs are presented, based on three potential management regimes: (a) a 5-year rotation with trees/acre producing an average 6 in.

In addition to building on past work on this subject completed by RISI, our effort has included new original research, and on‐site visits in to dedicated woody biomass. Species richness and Simpson's diversity index were selected as the two measures of diversity for woody species in this work.

Previous studies [36], [37] have suggested that species richness recovers much faster than species composition in secondary forests or plantation forests. One alternative to crop‐based biofuels is woody biomass harvested directly from forests, an avenue thought to be more promising than harvesting non‐woody species for a variety of reasons.

First, woody biomass stores more potential energy per unit mass than non‐woody biomass. Woody Biomass Production in the South: A Vision and a Need Author: Dr.
