About this book

Responding to the need for reliable and detailed information on biomass consumption and supply and overcoming the lack of standardized measurement and accounting procedures, this handbook provides the skills to understand the biomass resource base, the tools to assess the resource and the pros and cons of exploitation. Topics covered include assessment methods for woody and herbaceous biomass, biomass supply and consumption and remote sensing techniques.

International case studies, ranging from techniques for measuring tree volume to transporting biomass, help to illustrate step-by-step methods and are based on field work experience. A set of technical appendices offer a glossary of terms, energy units and other valuable resource data.

Media reviews

"A very timely book [...] an important milestone and tool in the acceptance of the importance of biomass as a fuel. It should be a standard reference for governments and development agencies for some time to come."
Reforesting Scotland, Spring/Summer 2007

"The Biomass Assessment Handbook [...] gives a good guide to how to assess this important energy resource. Like biomass itself, this book has been a long time in gestation, and draws on the expertise of a lot of people who have been active in the biomass field over the years [...] A good guide to how to assess this important energy resource [...] Interesting stuff"
Renew

"Something of a classic in the world of biomass since its initial publication in 2007, this useful handbook, which was issued as a paperback last year, has just been reprinted to meet demand [...] If you are involved in the bioenergy industry today, you may well have this book on your shelf already. If you don't, why not?"
