THE GLOBAL ECONOMY BRINGS NEW CHALLENGES TO THE
FOREST PRODUCTS INDUSTRY. HOW WILL WE DEAL WITH
THEM?

  • WATER
  • FOOD
  • ENVIRONMENT
  • POVERTY
  • TERRORISM
  • WAR

ENERGY SHORTAGE OUR OPPORTUNITY
  • Current worldwide demand for oil
  • 81MM barrels/day
  • Production at 95 capacity
  • Demand in 20 years
  • 121MM barrels/day
  • Where will it come from?
  • Unstable countries and alternative sources
  • Source balance will change over time
  • Natural gas
  • Shortage in 10 years
  • Price high and climbing- up 17 last week

6
THE WOOD ENERGY andBIO-CHEMICALS MARKET
  • High volume
  • Non-cyclical
  • Primarily small diameter planted pine
  • Manage forests to include new uses
  • Success will put more acres in trees
  • Failure will take acres out of trees

7
THE TIMBER RESOURCE
  • Abundant
  • Renewable, Sustainable, Expandable
  • Grow pine trees faster and bigger
  • Harvesting capacity in place and under-utilized
  • Growing and harvesting more trees improves the
    environment
  • Long history of success

8
TREES CAN BE USED FOR ENERGY AND BIO-CHEMICALS
  • Co-fire with coal
  • Should be our first priority
  • Proven at up to 10 mix, sawdust size
  • Georgia utilities use about 30MM tons/yr.
  • Utilities have little incentive to include wood
  • 250 year coal supply, relatively cheap - PRB
  • We need to help with legislation to provide
    financial incentive for utilities to use wood as
    fuel
  • Convert to bio-oil
  • More dense (higher BTU/lb)
  • MS State got 1.4MM grant wood preservative
  • Gasify
  • High capital cost

9
THE SOUTHERN ALLIANCE FOR THE UTILIZATION
OF BIOMASS RESOURCES(SAUBR)A Partnership for
Rural Development Through the Production of
Energy and Chemicals from Forests and Farms in
the Southern United States
10
Purpose of the Alliance
  • Create a new industry which will use bio-mass as
    an energy and chemicals feedstock new high
    volume, non-cyclical USES for forest and farm
    crops TREES
  • Small diameter trees
  • Logging residue(Limbs, tops, un-merchantable)
  • Stimulate rural development
  • Restore jobs lost
  • Create new jobs, in the woods and in plants
  • Decrease dependence on fossil fuels

11
Why an Alliance is necessary
  • Conventional market forces too slow and currently
    in the wrong direction
  • Get our arms around IT
  • Put the pieces together
  • Need combined effort for political power and
    efficiency
  • Quicker COMMERCIALIZATION

12
What SAUBR Will Do
  • Combine strengths and resources of members
  • Assist in legislative process
  • Is a center for communications, co-operation,
    collaboration
  • Conduit for information exchange
  • Eliminate duplication
  • Joint projects by members
