The Native Forest Biomass for Bio-energy Forum

Timber Communities Australia has issued an invitation to attend the ‘Native forest biomass for bio-energy forum; social, environmental and economic considerations’ on 7 March.
Presentations will be given by leading experts in the science, policy, social outcomes and
economics of bio-energy from biomass. Confirmed speakers include: Andrew Lang,
Board member of the World Bio-energy Association; Stephen Shuck, Manager of
Bio-energy Australia; Dr Sue Baker, Research Fellow School of Plant Science UTAS;
Rob Douglas, Pellet Fires Tasmania; and John Hollis, divisional manager of Oakdale
Politicians, presenters and guests will be invited to offer their reflections on native
forest biomass for bio-energy, and the implications of the recently tabled federal
regulations to exclude native forest biomass as an eligible green energy source
under the Renewable Energy Target Scheme.
And there will be a special chance for people to throw a question or two to the panel. The three best questions, as submitted by the invited audience prior to the forum, will be the first to be answered by the panel.
