Washington State: We Have Plenty of Biomass Fuel for New and Existing Users

From Biomass Power & Thermal Magazine:

Washington State Commissioner of Public Lands Peter Goldmark has unveiled the results of a comprehensive state forest biomass study that shows only about one-third of the state’s commercially available biomass is currently being used.

The Washington Forest Biomass Supply Assessment commenced in 2010, and Goldmark said a major conclusion is that 4.4 million bone dry tons (BDT) of forest biomass was produced by state logging operations in 2010, and out of that number, 1.4 million BDT, or roughly 30 percent, was potentially available for commercial use.
