This is an informal information sharing mechanism designed to facilitate the development of markets.� Thus, do not hesitate to make an entry even if you are in the planning stages of a project.� Just indicate the status of your project on the entry form.� Someone who is looking for what you are thinking about producing might contact you and tip the scales.� Conversely, someone might be planning to produce exactly what you need but is waiting to decide until a better market appears.�

There are plenty of loggers who would like to harvest more woody biomass, and there is plenty of interest in switching to cheaper, lower-impact, wood fuel.� But, loggers aren't going to invest $100,000's in specialized equipment unless they are confident of a market. Conversely, schools and other facilities are not going to install wood boilers unless a reliable supply of fuel wood is available.� Thus, the need to simultaneously develop both sides of the equation is obvious.� It also seems clear that some brave, farsighted people will have to stick their necks out a bit.� Please help connect the dots on the UP biomass map.
