Washington Department of Natural Resources Selects the University of Washington in association with TSS Consultants to Conduct Statewide Biomass Resource Assessment

TSS Consultants will be teaming with the University of Washington for a unique project in the State of Washinton. The Washington DNR recently selected the University of Washington and TSS Consultants to conduct a statewide forest biomass assessment. The assessment will estimate woody biomass volume, throughout the State of Washington, from forest operations on a long-term, sustainable basis to be used as feedstock for energy production. The assessment will utilize various filters, such as operational feasibility, as well as financial and environmental hurdles to determine suitable prospective woody biomass volumes.

It is anticipated that assessment results will provide forest resource managers with data and tools (e.g., biomass calculator) to generate reasonably accurate estimates of woody biomass material available for energy production. In addition, this assessment will provide potential bioenergy project developers with a regional overview regarding biomass feedstock availability within the state of Washington. It is anticipated that a final report providing detailed results will be issued by September, 2011.
