Research output: Book/ReportBook (editor)Scientificpeer-review


The programme of the international wood energy workshop, entitled "Nordic Treasure Hunt: Extracting Energy from Forest Residues", organised on 30th August, 2000 in Finland, consisted of six papers from Finland and five papers from leading experts from Sweden and Denmark. Some papers reported on recent research findings and progress, and some reviewed the past development and present status of large-scale production and use of forest chips. This seminar was focused on forest residues and its uses in the context of Nordic experiences and technologies. Competitiveness and costs as well as environmentally sound forestry are the key issues. The seminar was organised in collaboration with the Finnish Wood Energy Technology Programme and the OPET Finland. In connection with the international programme, an annual seminar was held on August 29, 2000 at the conference centre in Jyväskylä, Finland.
