Step by step information for businesses, from the advantages of co-operative working in the woodfuel sector to practical guidance on how to do it successfully.

The focus of this Guide - The scale of opportunity in the woodfuel supply chain at this time is enormous. Co-operative working is a key mechanism that can enable businesses to successfully enter this supply chain. The focus of this guide is to provide step by step information for interested businesses, from the advantages of co-operative working in this sector through to practical guidance on how to do it successfully.

This guide focuses primarily on the wood chip supply chain, as this is where the greatest opportunities lie for co-operative working and for the wider deployment of wood energy in Scotland. There are also significant opportunities for collaborative working arrangements that incorporate wood chip along with pellets and/or logs, for example to grow the local wood pellet supply chain on the back of wood chip supply, or simply to provide the raw material to wood pellet or wood chip producers.

Who is this guide for? - This guide is targeted at forestry, farming and other businesses that are looking to participate in the woodfuel supply chain. The guide will help you understand the benefits of working collaboratively to form cost effective supply chains that meet the needs of the growing number of woodfuel customers in Scotland.
