Abstract

Nighttime lights (NTL) are the procurement of remotely sensed artificial illumination from the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) satellite. NTL provides a unique perspective on anthropogenic activity by characterizing spatial and temporal patterns related to economic trends and...

Abstract

In British Columbia, Canada, aging forestry scientists struggle to pass on long-term projects to younger colleagues who may never arrive. Thanks to the government of British Columbia's radical downsizing of its forestry research institutions, many of these scientists have been forced to...

Abstract

This work aims to provide a comprehensive in-depth analysis of the life cycle environmental and economic performance of some key global supply chains for torrefied wood pellets (TWP) used as bulk fuel, including their contribution to the bio-economy of the region where they are produced, and the...

Abstract

One of the ways that Indigenous peoples are seeking recognition of their rights to ancestral and traditional territories is through increased participation in the forestry sector. Participating in forestry represents tangible recognition of the Lilwat First Nation's rights and allows progress...

Abstract

Wood pellets from two port storage silos and four pellet plants (manufacturing facilities) in British Columbia and one pellet plant in Quebec and wood chips used for pellet production from British Columbia were cultured to identify the viable fungi that were present. Living fungal pathogens and...

Abstract

Utilization of construction and demolition (C&D) wood waste to produce biofuels has economic, environmental and social impacts, therefore, evaluation of such biofuel projects requires the consideration of multi-criteria. In this study, a new approach is proposed to quantify the risk, resulted...

Abstract

Waste wood collected at the Vancouver landfill has been sorted based on the visibility of coatings, paints, and the green colorization of wood typically associated with wood preservatives. The sorted material was then ground and tested with an inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS)...

Abstract

Over 11 million cubic meters of timber were harvested from the coastal forests of British Columbia in 2017. For transport, the logs are usually floated in the water and towed along the coastal waters along Fraser River to sawmills. The submerged timber's chlorine content is up to 100 times higher...

Abstract

Upstream identification of wood properties using non-destructive testing methods such as acoustic velocity (AV) measurements is important for optimizing allocation of wood to mills or products. We evaluated the effectiveness of field AV measurement tools in predicting lodgepole pine wood stiffness...

Abstract

A well-to-wake life-cycle analysis of biojet fuel produced from pyrolysis-derived biocrudes upgraded via hydrotreatment was carried out and compared to petroleum-derived jet fuel. The life-cycle analysis model compared a 100 million liter-per-year upgraded pyrolysis oil facility at three locations...
