To evaluate the credibility and public acceptability of such forest carbon management alternatives, a British Columbia-wide engagement process is being carried out to identify the broad objectives that should underpin the province's future forest carbon management strategies, and to seek input on the options presented. This initiative is part of the Forest Carbon Management Project supported by the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions (PICS) that aims to generate recommendations for regionally specific climate change mitigation activities for BC's forest sector, while maximizing the environmental, economic and social benefits for British Columbians.
The analyses conducted thus far demonstrate that several of the potential mitigation activities in the forest sector can make a substantial contribution to BC's legislated greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction targets. The document does not rank alternatives, nor does it recommend any course of action. Instead its purpose is to explain and depict the potential climate mitigation and socioeconomic impacts of various management approaches and other considerations.

Last month, U.S. Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., secured North Dakota's primacy from the federal government over Class VI injection wells from the U.S. EPA allowing the state to approve underground carbon (CO2) capture and storage (CCS) projects. Trail Energy is located on the Broom Creek Formation, a geological formation that could store between 10 billion and 40 billion tons of captured CO2.Red Trail's plant will plant will produce about 4 million tons of CO2 over a 20-year span and about 20 million tons over 100 years. Red Trail Energy would also be required to contribute to a trust fund to ensure there is money available in the event of a future CCS related disaster even if the company discontinues business.
Final approval of the primacy awaits the outcome of a 60-day public comment period. If passed, Red Trail will continue discovery work before actually drilling the well which could be implemented in 2020.

MEF is a new manufacturing process that biologically converts cellulose and other organic materials into protein and industrial chemicals. It is a continuous, self-sustaining fermentation process that is focused on economics, resulting in a significant reduction in the energy required, thereby making the process environmentally and economically sustainable, according to IBC.
The MEF process takes inbound organic waste, such as food waste, paper and other food processing waste streams, and converts 95 pct of this material into saleable products. Using MEF, 3 to 10 tpd of waste can be processed in a plant the size of several 40-foot containers. Industrial chemicals created by the MEF process include enzymes, protein, lipids and phospholipids. These products are suitable for use in the paper, animal feed, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, lubricant, sealant and adhesive industries.

Anellotech is developing the Bio-TCat process to produce cost-competitive renewable aromatic chemicals such as benzene, toluene and xylenes (BTX) from non-food biomass for use in the production of polyester, nylon, polycarbonate, polystyrene, or for renewable transportation fuels.

The Bio-TCat reactor outlet hydrocarbon product requires only mild hydrotreating to remove trace impurities using existing oil refining technology. By using renewable and readily available non-food materials, such as sustainably harvested wood, corn stover and bagasse, the process is less expensive compared to processes relying on sugar as a feedstock.
