The project has to do with the financial evaluation of using different types of trees as biomass for energetic consideration. This initiative is designed to develop a model to analyze and evaluate the economic benefits of the intensive cultivation of willow trees and compare them with results obtained with traditional forestry practices. The project also aims to determine optimal production conditions for poplar plantations and the cultivation of other woody plants, including triticale and switch grass. This model will help establish analysis and evaluation standards for the industry and its business models.
