Recent articles and statements in the media raise concerns over the climate effects of using forest biomass for bioenergy. As some statements seem to reflect misconceptions about forest bioenergy, IEA Bioenergy provides a brief overview of key facts about the use of forest biomass for climate change mitigation. With permission from IEA, f3 reproduces the text in a fact sheet that is available for download here.

At this point, the fact sheet is only available in English but we hope to publish a summary in Swedish shortly.
