feedstock_600Forest growth has been seen as a northern resource as it is plentiful in several Scandinavian countries. On the Bio4Energy platform for feedstock research, scientists attempt to understand what trees are made of and, where appropriate, to modify their characteristics so that trees can be designed for use for a specific purpose, such as for making biofuel. Photo used with permission.The research in Bio4Energy Feedstock aims at:
  • Increasing the quantity and quality of plant biomass sourced from forests and;
  • Developing efficient processes for conversion of biomass to valuable products and energy.

Both researchers are affiliated with the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) and carry out much of their work at the Umeå Plant Science Centre (UPSC). 

Said Niittylä of the platform Bio4Energy Feedstock: "The overarching goal of the feedstock platform is to increase biomass accumulation per hectare and make the biomass better suited for biorefinery processing. The Bio4Energy Feedstock platform investigates the molecular controls of quantity and quality of wood, the environmental and management practices that govern these, develops analytical tools for wood characterisation and carries out field trials with transgenic trees. We can provide expertise in cellular and organismal growth control, biomass allocation to harvestable parts of the trees, characterisation of wood and fiber properties, quantitative tree genetics and establishment of tree plantations".
