Session 13: >>Sustainable use of forest biomass<< of the Perpetual Online Conference of the Socioeconomic Metabolism Section

Socio-Economic Metabolism

The next session of the SEM section's Perpetual Online Conference is up!

Forest biomass is drawing attention in terms of carbon neutrality which includes circular use of wood products, sustainable forest management and carbon sink in cities.

Although the importance of forest biomass as a carbon-neutral material has been widely acknowledged, how to develop a sustainable system that utilizes forest biomass efficiently leaves much room for discussion.The challenges are different by country and region. In this session, researchers from wide regions and countries share their works and insights, and discuss how we can make the shift to a carbon-neutral society through the use of forest biomass.

Date and time: January 23rd, 11:00-13:00 UTC

Location: Online.
