Background

 IEA Bioenergy is an international, collaborative  research programme on Bioenergy (www.ieabioenergy.com). The primary goal of IEA Bioenergy Task 38 ("Greenhouse Gas Balances of Biomass and Bioenergy Systems") is to investigate all processes involved in the use of bioenergy and land-use systems, on a full fuel-cycle basis, with the aim of assessing overall greenhouse gas balances. Participating countries are Austria, Australia, Canada,  Croatia, Denmark, Finland, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Sweden, United Kingdom,  and the USA. This Task follows on from the previous IEA Bioenergy Task 25.

This workshop in Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, Australia, is the final Task 25 workshop and the first workshop of Task 38. It is part of a  series of such events within the Task, taking place on a regular basis.
 

Scope of the workshop, events

Excursion (Monday and Tuesday, March 26 and 27)

Workshop sessions

  1. Carbon accounting of forestry and land use
  2. Carbon accounting of wood products and biofuels
  3. Managed forests for wood products, carbon sequestration and/or bioenergy;  their role in greenhouse gas policy (COP negotiations)
  4. Trading in carbon credits from bioenergy and carbon sequestration projects
  5. Task 25/38 Business session

Workshop Venue

The Workshop was held at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) Theatrette, Building 1
CSIRO  Forestry and Forest Products
Banks Street, Yarralumla, ACT, Australia.

Excursion: Australian Field  Tour

The two-day field trip (26-27th March) in the NSW Southern Highlands departed from Canberra 7:30 am and travelled firstly to the Tumut district. A Eucalypt/effluent irrigation project and a new pulp mill were visited with overnight in Tumut. The second day the excursion turned back to Canberra via Cooma, looking at pine plantation operations, the Snowy  Mountains Hydro-electric Scheme and Kosciuszko National Park.
