Spatial Analysis of Woodlot Feasibility in Providing Fuel to Colby College Biomass Facility
Abstract or Description
This project analyzes woodlot feasibility in providing fuel for the biomass facility being built at Colby College in the spring of 2012. The demand for fuel is estimated at 22,000 tons of wood chips annually, fluctuating monthly due to consumption needs. This project identifies the most feasible woodlots for supplying Colby College based on size and distance from the plant. Categorized, the ranking of woodlots may be applied to decisions about where to get fuel as demand rises. Minimum and maximum thresholds can be derived and scaled based on demand.
