Vol 1 - Lignocellulosic Residue

Peter Hall, Barbara Hock and Carolyn Hodgson, Scion, June 2008

This report presents a set of data as maps and tables, showing the amounts and locations of forest residues and other lignocellulosic residues over time from 2005 to 2030 (2050 for forest harvest residues). The resources included are derived from:

  • forest harvest residues; municipal wood waste; wood processing residues; agricultural crop residues, and horticultural residues

This report provides a summary of data, as at June 2008, with some attempts to predict forward based on drivers such as known crops (forest age classes) and population.

Volume 2 - Wastes and Effluents

Peter Hall and Barbara Hock, Scion, May 2008

This report presents a set of data as maps and tables, showing the amounts and locations of energy that can be derived from municipal, farm and some industrial wastes and effluents as at 2005. The resources included are major sources of biomass wastes derived from;

  • municipal solid waste; municipal biosolids; farm dairy effluent; pig farm effluent; poultry farm waste; dairy factory effluent, and meat processing effluent

These resources represent the major sources of effluents, and is not a comprehensive list of all effluents available.  This report provides a summary of data, as it is known at the time of writing, attempts to predict forward based on drivers such as population and stock numbers were not attempted due to large areas of uncertainty.
