Biomass Assessment Handbook

About this book

The increasing importance of biomass as a renewable energy source has led to an acute need for reliable and detailed information on its assessment, consumption and supply. Responding to this need, and overcoming the lack of standardised measurement and accounting procedures, this best-selling handbook Biomass Assessment Handbook, Second Edition provides the reader with the skills to understand the biomass resource base, the tools to assess the resource, and explores the pros and cons of exploitation.

This new edition of the Biomass Assessment Handbook has been fully updated and revised with new chapters on sustainability methodologies. Topics covered include assessment methods for woody and herbaceous biomass, biomass supply and consumption, land use change, remote sensing techniques, food security, sustainability and certification as well as vital policy issues. Biomass Assessment Handbook, Second Edition includes international case studies on techniques from measuring tree volume to transporting biomass, which help to illustrate step-by-step methods. Technical appendices offer a glossary of terms, energy units and other valuable resource data.
