Working Group 1

WG 1 has established a database of commonly used terms and units related to the use of
forest biomass for energy and create a unified terminology. Furthermore, standard
measurement and biomass units were harmonized within participating countries. The purpose  was to develop a common and official terminology for forest biomass operations.

In addition, WG1 presented a "Time Study Tool". The tool is specifically designed for time studies within biomass harvesting operations, but they are fit for general use and can be applied to many other fields where time studies are needed.
