Woodfuels are increasingly used as a climate friendly alternative to fossil fuels. Such biofuels can be produced in many different ways and not all of these can be considered sustainable. An increasing number of (voluntary or mandatory) sustainability certifi cation systems have become developed in recent years requiring criteria and indicators to ensure sustainable woodfuel production.
This seminar intends to inform and stimulate discussions about recent development in this area. A report titled “Criteria and Indicators for Sustainable Woodfuels” - jointly produced by IEA Bioenergy Task 31 and The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations - will be presented and there will also be an update of the status, visions and challenges for the development of an international
standard: ISO PC 248, Sustainability criteria for bioenergy.
