Comparing Life-Cycle Carbon and Energy Impacts for Biofuel, Wood Product, and Forest Management Alte

Description:
The different uses of wood result in a hierarchy of carbon and energy impacts that can be characterized by their ef?ciency in displacing carbon emissions and/or in displacing fossil energy imports. Producing multiple coproducts with different uses that result in different values complicates carbon mitigation accounting. Background information is provided on existing life-cycle data and methods to evaluate prospective new processes and wood uses. Alternative management, processing, andcollection methods are evaluated for their different ef?ciencies in contributing to national objectives.
