Article
FORMIT-M is a widely applicable, open-access, simple and flexible, climate-sensitive forest management simulator requiring only standard forest inventory data as input. It combines a process-based carbon balance approach with a strong inventory-based empirical component. The model has been linked to the global forest sector model EFI-GTM to secure...

Plausible scenarios of future land use derived from model projections may differ substantially from what is actually desired by society, and identifying such mismatches is important for identifying policies to resolve them. This paper presents an approach to link explorative projections of future land use for the European Union to normative visions...
Article
Full-text available
Protection of natural or semi-natural ecosystems is an important part of societal strategies for maintaining biodiversity, ecosystem services, and achieving overall sustainable development. The assessment of multiple emerging land use trade-offs is complicated by the fact that land use changes occur and have consequences at local, regional, and eve...

Research and Innovation (R&I) plays a central role in developing advanced biofuels technologies to help achieve the EU’s climate and energy targets. This study examines the R&I potential for feedstock production, advanced biofuels production, and use of advanced biofuels. The study quantifies R&I potential under future scenarios where EU targets ar...

Article
This study examines how subsidies for wood-fired heat and power plants and wood with coal co-fired power plants influence the use of wood biomass for energy in the short (2020) to medium (2030) term in the EU (European Union). Analysis shows that without subsidies wood-fired electricity will take only a marginal market share due to limited availabi...
Article
Full-text available
The main political objectives of EU's renewable strategy are decreased use of fossil energy sources, reduced CO2 emissions and increased energy self sufficiency. Wood based bioenergy plays an important role in this strategy. The potential increase in wood demand for bioenergy production is of high interest for the EU forestry and forest industries...

Article
Full-text available
This study examines the effects of different coal, natural gas and carbon emission prices and market situations on the use of wood for electricity and heat production in the European Union. The analysis is carried out using the global forest sector model EFI-GTM expanded to cover electricity and heat production from wood, coal, natural gas, wind an...
Article
The aim of this document is to define, quantify and downscale the reference futures A1 and B2 to European forest wood chain specific input material. The quantified material serves as consistent input to the model runs in the Modules. The full input material is available on the Eforwood portal. Furthermore this document describes the actual scenario...
Article
Full-text available
This study addresses the effects of increasing energy wood prices on the EU forest sector and on the use of wood biomass for energy. We examine different energy wood price levels under two contrasting scenarios of future global development, defined by the A1 and B2 storylines of IPCC. A1 depicts increased globalization and rapid economic growth. In...

EFORWOOD, Tools for Sustainability Impact Assessment (Thematic Priority: 6.3 Global Change and Ecosystems) This report is a deliverable from the EU FP6 Integrated Project EFORWOOD – Tools for Sustainability Impact Assessment of the Forestry-Wood Chain. The main objective of EFORWOOD was to develop a tool for Sustainability Impact Assessment (SIA) o...

The Russian Federation is the world's largest net exporter of roundwood. To encourage shift in exports from roundwood to value-added industrial products, Russia has set large tariffs on its roundwood exports, and announced that even higher ones would be introduced in the future. Using a global forest sector model, the EFI-GTM, we analyse how the Ru...
Article
Full-text available
The impact of using alternative measures to curb EU imports of illegally harvested wood are compared based on the simulation runs of the EFI-GTM global forest sector model. Four policy options are considered: 1) Baseline Scenario - Voluntary Partnership Agreements (VPA) between the EU and six countries, 2) Option 1 - expanded VPAs increased to incl...

When the automobile was developed near the beginning of the last century, it was the relatively new fuel gasoline, not the familiar ethanol that became the fuel of choice. We examine the intersections of the early development of the automobile and the petroleum industry and consider the state of the agriculture sector during the same period. Throug...

Full-text available
Land use is a key factor to social wellbeing and has become a major component in political negotiations. This paper describes the mathematical structure of the European Forest and Agricultural Sector Optimization Model. The model represents simultaneously observed resource and technological heterogeneity, global commodity markets, and multiple envi...
Article
Full-text available
Scenarios with either 3% or 5% of the productive forest stock in Western Europe set-aside for conservation are compared to a baseline case. The latter case is further compared to cases where the whole of Europe and North America join the 5% conservation program. The scenarios are created by employing a global forest sector model, EFI-GTM.The aggreg...
Article
Full-text available
The global forest sector model EFI-GTM was applied to assess regional impacts in Europe of increased timber supply caused by potential acceleration of forest growth in Europe. The EFI-GTM is a multi-periodic partial equilibrium model, which contains 31 European regions and 30 regions for the rest of the world, and trade between the regions. The end...
Article
Full-text available
The Russian forest sector is currently under pressure of an economic crisis. Average annual production of the roundwood has decreased about 3 times since 1989. Limited domestic demand for forest products restricts production growth and the development of the technology in forest industries. At the same time forest resources are not fully utilized....
Article
NAPAP model and USDS POLYSYS models were linked to project future market scenarios of pulpwood supply from agricultural short-rotation woody crops in the US. Results suggest that pulpwood supply from fast-growing hybrid poplars and cottonwoods will become marginally economical but fairly limited in the next several decades.
Chapter
The forest sector in Russia is of significance for the economy of the country, accounting as it does for 4% of the GDP. Similarly the sector accounts for over 7% of the total industrial labor force of the country (Burdin 1997).
Article
Describes the analysis, results, and some forestry implications on the two economic models, NAPAP model and USDS POLYSYS.

Project
POLYFORES has three main aims to: (1) map ecological impacts including trade-offs and synergies between different FES of variable forest management scenarios at different spatial and temporal scales; (2) provide a holistic approach of value assessment taking into account different valuations across multiple levels of decision-making and diverse sectoral perspectives contributing to appraisal of trade-offs and synergies between different FES; and (3) support decision-making processes of FES at different (Pan-European and EU, national and sub-national) levels through a transdisciplinary approach involving decision makers in a continuous participatory learning process level throughout the entire project.
