Project: BioFrame 2.0 – navigating synergies and tradeoffs towards future forest-based solutions

The project explores ways to balance the Swedish forestry sector's contribution to increased climate benefits and biomass production by analyzing industrial processes, product portfolios, and forestry practices, with a focus on carbon storage and altered management methods.

More about the project

The Swedish forest sector faces demands for increased carbon storage in the forest and changed management methods that result in reduced production, as well as potentially new - and large - consumers of forest raw materials. Which combinations of industrial processes and product portfolios, CO₂ capture and storage, and forestry work best to guarantee sustainable wood supply and increased climate benefits?

This question forms the basis for system analyses of the Swedish forest sector and Sweden's climate transition, based on detailed models for new and existing industrial processes, CO₂ storage and forestry.

Different strategies are developed in collaboration with stakeholders in the sector. This means that the relevance of the studied alternatives is ensured and that there are channels for communicating, discussing and implementing the project's results.

The project is part of the research in the Linnaeus Knowledge Environment: Green Sustainable Development
