Tekes, the National Technology Agency in Finland, established in 1999 the Wood Energy Technology Programme to develop efficient technology for large-scale production of forest chips from residual forest biomass such as small-sized trees from early thinnings and logging residues and stump and root wood from final fellings. The five-year programme was completed in spring 2004. The programme was coordinated by VTT Processes. It was composed of 46 industrial or product development projects, 44 research projects, and 28 demonstration projects. The total expenditure was about 42 M . The programme, although it was basically national, participated in international cooperation within organisations such as ALTENER Bioenergy Network - EUBIONET, OPET (Organisations for the Promotion of Energy Technologies) of EU, and Task 31 (Conventional Forestry Systems for Sustainable Production of Bioenergy) of the IEA Bioenergy Agreement, and bilaterally at project level. A 52-page interim report of the programme, including the list of projects, was published earlier in English as Technology Programme Report 5/2003 of Tekes. An English version of the final report will appear during the first half of 2004.
