Potentialen av skogsbiomassa i Sverige: En metaanalys

Abstract [en]

The objective with the thesis was to make a comprehensive review of scientific articles and other studies on the potential of woody biomass in Sweden. Furthermore, the impact different approaches, restrictions and type of study have had on the reported outcome from the different studies have been examined. The method is based on a meta-analysis using ordinary least square (OLS) regression estimations. The theoretical framework is based on optimal harvesting rates of renewable resources and a supply and demand model of woody biomass, identifying the factors that affect the supplied amount of woody biomass. The results imply that the choice of restrictions (economical, technical, ecological and theoretical), as expected, had a large impact on the estimated potential of woody biomass. However, the result for using economical restrictions suggests an increased potential, which was unexpected. Conclusively, the thesis suggests that there is further potential to increase the utilization of woody biomass in Sweden.
