We are frequently asked if we have copies of previous woody biomass utilization feasibility studies available. As a result we have added a number of feasibility studies and other reports to the grants pages of the Woody Biomass Website. These were funded by the California Association of Resource Conservation & Development Councils (CARC&DC) between 2007 and 2010. Funding came from the Forest Service State & Private Forestry.
The 12 reports cover a range of topics and are a great resource for those who are interested in biomass utilization opportunities. The information can help you in the decision making process and also help in the design of requests for proposals (RFPs) for feasibility studies.
The documents include pre-feasibility and feasibility studies prepared by a number of companies and organizations including TSS Consultants, Carlson Small Power Consultants, BioEnergy Solutions and the Watershed Research & Training Center. There is an emphasis on biomass to energy particularly at smaller scale.
There are two reports on equipment installation at wood processing facilities funded by the project. We (UC) worked with the CARC&DC on a number of woody biomass utilization workshops across the state and this report is also included. Finally there is a report from the CARC&DC on their attempts to organize fast pyrolysis demonstrations in northern California.
We hope you find the reports useful.
