  Session 5.W1. PRODUCTION OF ENERGY CARRIERS IN SHORT-ROTATION FORESTRY IN SWEDEN K. L. P e r t t u Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences Department of Ecology and Environmental Research Box , S 07 Uppsala, Sweden ABSTRACT The prerequisites for energy forestry in Sweden are : K.L. Perttu. This book summarizes recent experiences on how to manage forest land to produce woody biomass for energy use and what are the potentials to mitigate climate change by substituting fossil fuels in energy production. In this context, the book addresses how management can affect the supply of energy biomass using short-rotation forestry and the conventional forestry applying long rotations. Short Rotation Forestry, Short Rotation Coppice and energy grasses in the European Union: Agro-environmental aspects, present use and perspectives Thematic introduction to SRF, SRC and energy grasses, Rothamsted, 17 October Theo Verwijst, SLU, Uppsala Rothamsted Research Expert Consultation • Review of crops (SRC, SRF, perennial grasses). for short rotation forestry (Table 1).In recent years the potential of Eucalyptus for energy and fibre production has been investigated and shows much potential (Hutchinson, Thompson and Berkery).The species shows extremely rapid early growth and has the potential to produce large volumes on relatively short rotations,with rotations.

The effort made by Biopoplar s.r.l. has been upgrading the production process in the Short Rotation Forestry (SRF) and Medium Rotation Forestry (MRF) finalized to the production of energy, OSB panel and pulp wood, also thanks to partnership and collaborations with different bodies, as follows. Research and genetic selection: Thanks to the strong. Short rotation forestry As a rotation crop, SRC is harvested at specific intervals, to provide a regular and constantly renewable supply of fuel. The development of SRC for renewable energy production is a new sector with potential for considerable expansion, offering benefits for growers, developers, consumers, local communities and the environment. The rotation is typically longer than for willow or poplar, and the yield is lower, but for management within a mixed woodland this can both help to produce products on a more regular basis than from conventional forestry, and also may be useful to produce smaller diameter logs and stems for both firewood and traditional coppice markets. A description of progress in 3 areas: assessment of above ground biomass production, trials of short rotation forest energy plantations [see FA 43, 73]; and a survey of equipment suitable for harvesting forest .

General information is given on Brazil, including data on wood consumption in industry and for energy, and the areas, growth and projected volume production and market characteristics of present and future plantations of Eucalyptus and Pinus. A brief account is given of Aracruz Cellulose, a self-sufficient company with regard to wood production for energy and pulping based on short-rotation. Silviculture Energy Farms (Short Rotation Forestry) Silviculture energy farms employ techniques more similar to agriculture than forestry. The chief objective of energy plantation is to produce biomass from the selected trees and shrub species in the shortest possible time (generally yrs) and at the minimal cost, so as to satisfy local energy needs in the decentralized manner.   3 – 10 years – short rotation forestry (poplar, willow, robinia) for energy. b. Basic factors of forestry biomass production are: • side class index of the stand which includes quality of soil, the water regime (precipitation etc.), climate, average temperature, length of the growth period, etc. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Short Rotation Forestry (SRF) is grown as an energy crop for use in power stations, alone or in combination with other fuels such as coal. It is similar to historic fuelwood coppice systems.
