Although the Nordic countries of the European Union have been at the forefront of commercial applications for woody biomass, Canada does have a large number of facilities producing energy from wood. The purpose of this study is to examine the utilization of the large feedstock stream resulting from the Mountain Pine Beetle epidemic occurring in the Northern and Central Interior of British Columbia. This will be compared to literature outlining other options and draw conclusions on the feasibility of beetle killed biomass bioenergy options in Canada.
