1 Energetic utilisation of wood in northwest Russia Prof. Dr. VLADIMIR PETROV Institute of Forest Economics, St. Petersburg State Forest Technical Academy Dipl.- Oec. ANTON ORLOV Chair of Forestry and Forest Products of Eastern Europe Institute of International Forestry and Forest Products TU Dresden 16 th September 2010

2 Prospects for the energetic utilisation of wood Dendromass potential of northwest Russia Pellet production in northwest Russia New pellet plant in the Leningrad Region EFI 2010 Annual Conference, Dresden, Germany 2

3 Russias Energy Strategy EFI 2010 Annual Conference Dresden, Germany The Energy Efficiency Programme will run until 2020 and provide for an increase in the proportion of renewable resources from 1% to 4.5%. The Forest Exploitation Incentives component of the Priority Investment Projects will incentivise the flow of capital into the Russian forest industry.

4 EFI 2010 Annual Conference Dresden, Germany

5 Northwest Russia EFI 2010 Annual Conference Dresden, Germany 5 ~10% of the territory of Russia ~10% of the total Russian forest area ~10% of Russias GDP Area Population Forest land Volume of mature and overmature trees 1.7 million km million 85.1 million ha 4.4 billion m 3

6 Dendromass potential of northwest Russia Theoretical potential Тechnical potential Actual potential EFI 2010 Annual Conference Dresden, Germany 6

7 Theoretical dendromass potential EFI 2010 Annual Conference Dresden, Germany 7 Theoretical potential = Stemwood volume of the stand + Wood residues (branches, crowns and roots) (m 3 / a * region) 100%

8 Theoretical dendromass potential of the northwest Russia: 170 million m 3 /a EFI 2010 Annual Conference Dresden, Germany 8

9 Technical dendromass potential of the northwest Russia The technical potential for the energetic utilisation of dendromass consists of the following components: firewood wood residues (only branches and tree tops) sawmill and plywood residues EFI 2010 Annual Conference Dresden, Germany 9

10 EFI 2010 Annual Conference Dresden, Germany 10 Technical dendromass potential of the northwest Russia: 71 million m 3 /a

11 Actual dendromass potential of the northwest Russia Restrictions Ecological (W)Economic (P) Conditions (W~W 1 )(P>0) W is a parameter describing an ecological situation before and after resource extraction P - profit should be >0 EFI 2010 Annual Conference Dresden, Germany

12 Actual dendromass potential of the northwest Russia: 29 million m 3 / a EFI 2010 Annual Conference Dresden, Germany 12

13 EFI 2010 Annual Conference Dresden, Germany 13 The annual allowable cut is the maximum permissible volume of wood harvested per year. Utilisation of the annual allowable cut in the northwest Russia (%)

14 EFI 2010 Annual Conference Dresden, Germany 14 Source: 2003; 2009/10 Pellet production Europe & northwest Russia

15 Price trends for pellets: Europe / Germany / Russia EFI 2010 Annual Conference Dresden, Germany Pellets Oil Nat. gas Euros per tonne of wood pellets Cent per litre oil / Cent per 10 kWh gas Source: C.A.R.M.E.N., Lesprominform, 2009

16 Pellet production project in the Leningrad Region Capacity: 1 million t /a EFI 2010 Annual Conference Dresden, Germany 16 Raw material requirement: million m 3 / a

17 Summary EFI 2010 Annual Conference Dresden, Germany 17 Good geographical position Poorly developed network of forest roads The potential forest increment is limited by the age structure of the forests Forest management by the state does not involve businesses There are no mechanisms of support and subsidy

18 EFI 2010 Annual Conference Dresden, Germany 18 Thank you for your attention!
