Articles in the media have raised concerns over the climate effects of bioenergy from managed forests. Some statements seem to reflect misconceptions about forest bioenergy, so scientists within IEA Bioenergy have prepared a document presenting key facts about the use of forest biomass for climate change mitigation.
FNR represents Germany and BMEL in the Executive Committee of the IEA Bioenergy Technology Collaboration Agreement (TCP). The German National team Leader of Task 45 “Climate and Sustainability Effects of Bioenergy within the broader Bioeconomy”, which has developed the text, is Stefan Majer, DBFZ.
