A joint Nordic learn undertaking on harvesting and usage of logging residue was once conducted in 1969-1976 less than the auspices of the Nordic study Council on wooded area Operations. This fruitful cooperation quickly gave upward thrust to comparable nationwide initiatives in Sweden, Finland, Norway, and Denmark, stimulating additional examine and generating sensible functions. simultaneously, fairly after the global strength hindrance in 1973, learn on all elements of usage of woodland bio­ mass mushroomed within the usa, Canada, and the Soviet Union.
