Number of Announced/Operating Wood Bioenergy Projects in the US Continues to Increase

According to Wood Bioenergy US, the number of announced and operating wood-consuming bioenergy projects in the continental US increased to 408 as of September 24, 2010.  In total, these projects represent potential, incremental wood use of 119.9 million green tons per year by 2020.  However, based on Forisk analysis of applied technologies and operational development, projects representing only 62.2 million tons per year pass basic viability screening (see figure).

Based on this analysis, 52% of these publicly-known projects pass the screen. By region, 67% of the wood bioenergy projects in the North and West pass, while the pass rate in the US South is 38%.
