Why Invest in Forest Bioproducts?

posted Mar 5, 2014, 10:49 AM by Kay Mann

According to the University of Maine Forest Bioproducts Research Institute (FBRI), woody biomass from our forests can be used to create new bio-products: transportation fuels, wood-based chemicals, consumer products and electrical energy to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. Innovative uses for sustainably harvested wood have great potential to reinvigorate forest management strategies, help landowners conserve forest lands, and transform industrial facilities into bio-refineries that manufacture many valuable wood products at one location.

For more information, see the FBRI website.
