  • Harvesting of crop byproducts
  • Transportation and storage issues
  • Generating or co-generating electricity form biomass
  • Structure and financing options for a biomass production co-operative
  • Densifying of biomass (ie:  pelleting, briquetting)
  • Biomass heat energy
  • Biomass as a feedstock for the productions of fuels
  • Biomass for the production of composite fibre boards
  • Biomass for the production of plastic products
  • Animal Bedding (dairy, pet market etc)
  • Biomass as a substrate for mushroom farming
  • Quality mulch for landscaping and vegetable farming
