Quantitative Investigation of Wood-Based Biomass in Support of a CHP Plant for the Ontario East Wood Centre & Eco-Industrial Park

This research will support the development of the Eco-Industrial Park and Ontario East Wood Centre (EOWC), which is under development in the Township of Edwardsburgh/Cardinal. The EOWC is an innovative approach to revitalizing the regional economy by adding value to the under-utilized renewable forest resource in the area. A critical gap in information required by potential investors will be addressed. Sources and quantities of available forest-based biomass within a 120 kilometer radius around the EOWC will be assessed. These sources will include standing forest, forest operation residues (slash), construction & demolition waste material, and mill residues.
