Low-Value Wood is minimally used for structural work given that higher quality wood can easily be sourced. High-value urban wood is often salvaged for furniture and interior design. The residual, low-value wood by-products have been mainly used for mulch or for heating purposes. The City of Toronto has been exploring opportunities to repurpose this wood residue as a biomass energy source. While this application has not been typically in North American urban centres, it is a common practice in Europe for the purposes of eco-district heating, etc. The Biomass Energy from Urban Wood Residue event will touch on the status of biomass availability and the bio-economy in Ontario, northern Ontario energy initiatives, as well as some pilot biomass energy use frameworks being implemented by a number of municipalities to support biomass energy generation around the Greater Toronto Area.
