  C. Whittaker, I. Shield, in Biomass Supply Chains for Bioenergy and Biorefining, Abstract. Short rotation woody crops (SRWCs) are ideal biomass energy crops because they are high yielding, can be grown on a wide variety of soil types, and require few inputs. Biofuels, Bioenergy, and Bioproducts from Short Rotation Woody Crops Research Issue. There is a substantial global need for development of integrated systems and technologies across forestry and agriculture that can economically and sustainably produce short rotation crops across multiple temporal and spatial scales.   Short-rotation woody crops (SRWC) can provide ecosystem services while they grow, as previous research has shown. But that might not be enough to make them feasible for bioenergy. “Bioenergy crops need to be profitable for everybody in the supply chain – the people who grow it, move it, and utilize it,” says Perdue. Introduction. When selecting crops for dedicated energy production, there is an emphasis toward fast-growing crops that achieve high yields with relatively low inputs (McKendry, ).In Europe, the main candidate systems involve growing woody crops in short harvest rotations, such as willow, poplar, and Eucalyptus, and fast-growing perennial energy grasses such as Author: C. Whittaker, I. Shield.

  It has been projected by the U.S. Department of Energy and others that a productivity rate of 8 to 10 dry tons/acre/yr will be required for the long-term feasibility of renewable energy production (English et al. ).Research has been conducted on growing short-rotation trees for bioenergy in the United States and other countries (Short Rotation Cited by: Short rotation coppice (SRC) is coppice grown as an energy woody solid biomass can be used in applications such as district heating, electric power generating stations, alone or in combination with other fuels. Currently, the leading countries in area planted for energy generation are Sweden and the UK.

Biomass Bioenergy. –; CrossRef Google ScholarCited by:   Goals / Objectives The project will focus on short rotation woody crops of Paulownia and Sweet gum. To assess the potential of this feedstock as a lignocellulosic feedstock for advance biofuel production and electricity generation, the project will conduct research in the areas of:feedstock production and post-harvest logisticsprocessing options for cellulosic .   The development of a bioenergy sector in the southeastern United States holds great economic promise, and it is anticipated that purpose-grown, short-rotation trees will be planted to address the million green tons of biomass that will be needed annually as a feedstock for advanced biofuels and by: Short rotation woody crops are useful to grow because they are renewable energy feedstock for biofuels, bioenergy and bio products that can be strategically placed in .
