Webinar: Lifecycle Assessment and Economics of Biochar From Forest Residues

August 23rd, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Online United States

This webinar presents a summary of results from forest, range, and mine sites where biochar has been applied and from a lifecycle assessment and economic analysis of producing biochar from forest residues. Biochar is produced from biomass at high temperatures in a low-oxygen environment. Using data collected from a pilot plant built for the Waste-to-Wisdom project, this webinar presents an outlook on the future of smaller-scale near-woods biochar production from an environmental and economic perspective. Specifically, we will discuss the…

Webinar: Economics Of Transportable Biomass Conversion Facilities For Producing Biochar, Briquettes And Torrefied Wood Utilizing Forest Harvest Residues

September 27th, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Online United States

To characterize the potential economic viability of transportable biomass conversion facilities for producing biochar, briquettes, and torrefied wood, biomass supply chains were modeled and optimized for five sub-regions within the Pacific Northwest. This webinar presents and discusses the results of this sub-regional analysis of transportable, near-forest biomass conversion facilities. We will discuss the impacts of regional feedstock composition and availability, transportation costs, facility movement, and biomass conversion technology upon the supply chain cost structure. We will also address the importance…
