Supergen Bioenergy Hub Workshop

May 11 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Novel Crops and Forestry Species as Sources of Industrial Biomass

In-person Workshop: 11 May 2023, 10.00 – 17.00, BIFoR FACE facility, Stafford

The aim of this workshop is to bring together stakeholders to gather information about novel industrial crops and trees that are of interest to the UK, and to build connections between researchers and producers of novel crops. Workshop sessions will provide an opportunity for attendees to share their knowledge and engage in discussion, and as a result will highlight what where there are outstanding evidence gaps. Following the workshop, a report outlining the findings will be published to help inform the wider community of the current evidence and future research priorities.

In the morning, attendees will be taken on a tour of the BIFoR FACE facility, the world’s largest global change experiment. Run by the Birmingham Institute of Forest Research, BIFoR FACE exposes mature oak/hazel forest to CO2 levels 150 ppm above ambient to measure forest productivity and resilience under future atmospheres.
