Midwest Biomass Inventory Assessment

The objective of this study was to determine potential biomass resources within the Midwest for thermal heating applications in order to provide a “snapshot” of the Midwest Biomass Inventory Assessment for presentation at the 2012 Heating the Midwest Conference & Expo and for furthering the vision of the Heating the Midwest Initiative.  This was done, in part, by developing a regional biomass inventory database of previously completed state-level assessments and datasets, which guided the methodology used to conduct the inventory as well as to validate its results.  Most importantly, the outcomes of the study can serve as a platform to begin the development of biomass-related projects.
