Integrated Forest Biorefineries: Sustainability Considerations for Forest Biomass Feedstocks

Forest biomass feedstocks have the potential to contribute significantly to bioenergy production in the United States. The forestry sector has adopted guidelines and certification systems for forest products such as lumber and paper produced from sustainable forestry. This chapter discusses the extension of these concepts to bioenergy from forests along with proposed sustainability measures, renewable biomass definitions, and how these may influence woody biomass supplied to integrated biorefineries.
