The Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management, DG Mobility, is investigating a possible role in the National Forest Strategy (LNV). One of the components of this exploration is more insight into the carbon storage that this possible contribution can make, both in the acreage and when used in products that remove the carbon from the atmosphere for many years.
The aim of this research is to develop a methodology that makes it possible to calculate the carbon storage in the woody biomass (ie in trees) within the existing area of Rijkswaterstaat and for the associated chains with product applications.
On behalf of Rijkswaterstaat, BioGrowth Development B.V. conducted a pilot of an automated area and chain analysis. This with the aim of realizing cost savings and increased efficiency for Rijkswaterstaat. Automation and scalability of data collection, storage, analysis and reporting are essential for this.
