Biomass Resource Assessment Capabilities New Zealand has very good biomass resource assessment capabilities. Leading agencies include the New Zealand Crown Research Institutes’ Scion and AgResearch; Landcare Research, Crop & Food Research; the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MAF); the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA); and Massey University. Geospatial techniques and GIS, in particular, have been used by Scion, Landcare Research, and MAF to map agricultural and forestry products and residues. A GIS model for estimating potential volumes and costs for delivering forest derived biomass to a chosen site has been developed. A forest productivity database has also been developed in a geospatial format. Modeling. Numeric modeling has been used by MAF in crop, forest industry, and wood availability forecasts. Bioenergy researchers at Scion have developed a range of user-friendly calculation tools (based on numeric modeling) to assess wood waste, cost of recovery, transportation costs, CO2 emissions, and return on investment to support decisions relating to bioenergy. More information about these tools is available at Data Availability. Two agencies are responsible for collecting and reporting crop, livestock, and forestry statistics in New Zealand – the MAF and Statistics New Zealand (SNZ). Both agencies use a combination of data-collection methods – paper and ground sample surveys. Information is collected at the farm or processing facility; aggregated; and reported by territory, region or nationwide. References 1. AgResearch, Accessed may 2008, 2.
