What are the potentials of forest feedstock for biofuel production?
Close to 60 people attended the seminar Feedstock for sustainable biofuel production that was co-arranged by f3, Bio4Energy and SLU at SLU in Umeå on Monday February 6th. The seminar opened with short presentations of the organizers, represented by Johanna Mossberg (f3, seen in photo), Joakim Lundgren (Bio4Energy) and Erik Fahlbeck (SLU), and their current activities in the field respectively.
The program as a whole had been put together to offer perspectives on the forest as a source of biomass for biofuel production. It covered the views and works of researchers and stakeholders regarding tailor-made feedstock, bio-economy development key challenges, issues of integrating production in existing plants, and assessment methods and their consequences when it comes to how to calculation of utilizing forest resources.
f3 wishes to thank all speakers, seminar participants, Bio4Energy, SLU in Umeå and the staff at BTC and BioEndev respectively for an interesting day with great insights in current and important questions and challenges regarding biofuel production from forest feedstock.
