Poster Abstract: Using information available from news outlets and state utilization specialists, a tally of the locations and types of current and planned operations that input wood residues, particles, and "low-use" wood in the northeastern states was accomplished. For each facility, information on the type of operation, raw material input requirements (type and amounts), products, location, and other data were collected and entered into a database. Database analysis provides insights into the distribution of woody biomass projects among the northeastern states and the variable demand for different types of biomass as raw material.
