Forest bioenergy in Europe: Towards sustainable options

The ThinkForest event on 'Forest bioenergy in Europe: Towards sustainable options’ takes place in the European Parliament, Brussels at 15:00-17:30 on 18 March 2014. The event will provide synthesised information and a structured debate around the following questions:

 

  • Is forest bioenergy ‘carbon neutral’ and what is its potential for climate mitigation?
  • What are the sustainability related risks of intensified forest management for bioenergy use?
  • Bioenergy markets: What are the policy implications for the forest sector?
  • Biomaterials vs. bioenergy: is the existing policy framework promoting the most efficient use of bioresources?

19th Century

Emergence of wood based paper and increased mechanisation

The systematic search for substitute raw materials with which to produce paper in Europe proved difficult. In the early 18th century straw was used as a raw material but it failed to make headway due to quality concerns.

However, in 1843, a solution was at hand, Saxon Friedrich Gottlob Keller invented a wood-grinding machine which produced groundwood pulp suitable for papermaking. This milestone was soon followed by an alternative way to turn wood into paper: chemical pulp was first patented in 1854 by Hugh Burgers and Charles Watt.

Following the invention of the first papermaking machine by J.N.L. Robert in 1798, other machines soon appeared on the market, such as Dickinson's cylinder machine. The machines could continuously fill wire moulds and couch the sheets of paper on felt.

Flat screen and cylinder machines, which were first seen in the 19th century, were continually improved and extended to include a dryer section. This soon led to a considerable widening of the paper web and to an increase in production speeds.

CEPI Guidance for revised EN643 published

EN 643 is the European List of Standard Grades of Paper and Board for Recycling. Revised in 2013, the new text includes several major improvements, including a grade-specific tolerance level for non-paper component and more detailed descriptions per grade. CEPI advises all organisations and individuals involved in trade with paper and board for recycling to implement and use the updated standard.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The CEPI guidance document

We launched a guidance document that details the changes in the revised EN643, to give advice to sellers and buyers of paper for recycling. The guidance was first launched at European Paper Week in English, but is already available in French and Portuguese. Other languages may follow.

We have also prepared a summary one-pager and a power point presentation(in English).

A webinar detaling the changes in the revised standard was organised in December 2013: The video recording is available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4tISOY39D3k (length=1hour)

We also prepared the following video giving the most important reasons for using the guidance:
