Energy and material supply from forest resources


The consortium generates knowledge on forest industries and wood use cycles as an integral
part of the national energy system, and develops sustainable solutions for the utilisation of forest bioenergy and for
the mitigation of climate change. We provide an integrated framework to analyse the sustainable use of forest-based
biomass to produce energy, industrial raw materials, and climate benefits.
