White paper: blanket exclusion of roundwood for pellet fuel is misguided
June 27, 2022 By FutureMetrics
There has been high-level discussion from some government policymakers in the EU about restricting the use of roundwood as feedstock for pellet fuel.
While the spirit of the policymaking exercise is properly grounded as a tactic to disallow permanent deforestation and encourage the most efficient use of a renewing resource, a blanket exclusion of roundwood is misguided.
This brief white paper explains why, while also discussing the dynamics of forest growth and carbon sequestration. It has a new dashboard allowing experimentation with different forest growth and carbon sequestration assumptions.
