Uwe Fritsche, of the International Institute for Sustainability Analysis and Strategy (IINAS), offered the scientific perspective, listing the range of issues will face us as we attempt to transform into a bioeconomy with biomass as an important component.
These include: greenhouse gas emissions from land use change and carbon stock change; biodiversity problems in terms of converting grasslands, wet lands and peat lands; food security and the land tenure issues and acidification.
also pointed to the 'fuel issue'.
noted, 'The more we trade bioenergy and the more we valorise forest products there is also a risk that we might misplace some of the fuel that is needed for the livelihood for a lot of people on this earth'.
is currently working with the EU's Joint Research Centre
(JRC), the European Environment Agency
(EEA) and others to consider the latest science behind these issues.
noted that talks are ongoing on potentially developing a matrix which identifies risks of greenhouse gas implications of using forest products.
