Summer School Course in Forest Fuel Quality Assurance 2013

The Norwegian Forest and Landscape Institute is an autonomous institute under the Ministry of Agriculture and Food and a national centre of expertise on land-based resources. The institute is a leading Norwegian scientific institution regarding use of forest resources, forest ecology and the environment, and is responsible for a range of national mapping programmes and resource inventories related to land cover, forestry, agriculture, landscape and the environment. DFE has worked with the institute in the past, specifically by establishing a wood fuel laboratory.

This summer, the institute is offering a summer course in Forest Fuel Quality Assurance focused primarily on the production and quality of wood chips. The purpose of the course is to provide participants with the detailed knowledge of existing fuel standards (ENS and ISO) and how to conform to these. They will learn about properties of forest biomass fuel through becoming familiar with various methods for sampling, going into the field to collect samples, and conducting the analysis of the data collected.

DFE staff has the responsibility for the course.
