ABOUT THE EVENT

Biogenic carbon accounting has been the center of the debate on the climate change impacts of forest-based bioeconomy. Much of the disagreement revolves around different assumptions regarding (1) forest management activities, including growth and harvest rates, and (2) carbon storage benefits of harvested wood products with long lifetimes under different use and end-of life (EoL) treatment scenarios. Resolving these issues requires not only a thorough understanding of both areas, but also a comprehensive characterization of interactions among different stakeholders within the value chain, reflecting decisions made in response to market dynamics and policy interventions. 

Join us to hear from the experts in the field and gain insights on how the bioproduct ecosystem behaves from the perspective of carbon accounting.
