Webinar: Use of Forest Biomass for Energy and its Carbon Neutrality

CEPI event Webinar: Use of Forest Biomass for Energy and its Carbon Neutrality 28 Jan. 2015 | 10:00 | Online

The climate and energy targets set at EU level have fuelled a growing debate on the real climate benefits of bioenergy, assuming that it would lead to a rapid increase of feedstock mobilisation, hence cancelling the carbon sequestration benefit of natural ecosystems. Scientific research has been investigating the issue with differing working assumptions in terms of time horizon, land dimension and calculation methods. With this webinar, CEPI, with the help of scientists, wants to contribute to the discussion, lifting some of the myths and misunderstandings.

Panellists:
• Dr.ir. Mart-Jan Schelhaas (ALTERRA Research Institute, Wageningen UR)
• Paulo Canaveira, Senior Consultant at the Portuguese Environment Agency, Ministry of Agriculture, Sea, Environment and Spatial Planning and Climate change consultant and owner TerraPrima
• Mårten Larsson, Senior Vice President Forestry, Head of Industrial Policy Department at the Swedish Forest industries Federation
