Sustainable Production of Woody Biomass in Tropical Peatlands

Research Project Outline

Field experiments of refl ooding and reforestation will be carried out to verify the possibility of bringing the drained tropical peatlands that emit huge amount of carbon dioxide back to a sink of carbon dioxide. Suitability of the woody biomass for biofuel and other biomaterials will be examined as well. The goal is to establish, through the evaluation of potential emis-sion reduction and the examination of feasibility, a system for sustainable land management considering peat conservation, plantation and product utilization.
