Introduction. Bioenergy from Sustainable Forestry synthesizes information needed to design or implement sustainable forest management systems for production of biomass for energy in conjunction with other forest products. It is organized around the criteria for sustainable forest management: productivity, environment, social issues, economics, and legal and institutional framework. This book is written for scientists and practitioners interested in deepening their knowledge of the sustainable production of bioenergy from wood in tropical and sub-tropical countries. Utilising the value chain concept, this book outlines the necessary aspects for managing sustainable bioenergy : Hardcover. The book brings together global experts to form a big picture of cutting-edge research in sustainable bioenergy and biofuels. It is an ideal resource for researchers, students, energy analysts and policymakers who will benefit from the book’s overview of impacts and innovative needs. “The book presents unique strategies for the exploration, management, production, extraction, conversion, quality analysis including the value-chain perspectives of bioenergy production from woody biomass. the book is a well written ‘guideline for biomass production, procurement and energy production for scientists, practitioners, and decision makers who are interested in a value-chain.

He is currently the project coordinator for AgroForNet, a federal research initiative for the sustainable use of dendromass to generate bioenergy. Christian Ammer is the head of the section Silviculture and Forest Ecology of the Temperate Zones at Gottingen University (Germany). The work of the Task involves criteria for sustainable forest management of bioenergy production systems involving multi-use forestry with primary production of traditional forest products. The scope is worldwide, including boreal, temperate, subtropical and tropical forest regions.

In this context, sustainable forest management is a key to understand and control indirect carbon emissions due to the utilization of forest biomass (e.g. from management, harvesting and logistics, and ecosystem processes), which are often omitted in assessing the carbon neutrality of energy systems based on forest biomass. The focus in this book is on forests and forestry in the boreal and .   Bioenergy from Sustainable Forestry: Principles and Practice. Proceedings of the IEA Bioenergy Task 18 Workshop, October, , Coffs Harbour, New South Wales, Australia. Forest Research Bulletin No. , NZ Forest Research Institute Ltd., Rotorua, New Zealand. This book describes how the bioenergy expansion will improve rural livelihoods, reduce costly energy imports, reduce GHG emissions, and offer new development paths. Drawing on international experience, it is shown that harnessing this potential will require significant increases in investment, technology transfer, and international cooperation.
