Energy from Forest Biomass is a book that emerged from the papers presented at the International Union of Forestry Research Organization (IUFRO) XVII World Congress held in Kyoto, Japan. This book includes 18 papers representing different authors from nine countries. The book is divided into four parts. Energy has been obtained from forests for thousands of years, forests being the largest contributor to the current global biomass supply .Most of today’s production of solid biomass for energy occurs in non-Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries (in , %)  and is widely used for traditional cooking and residential heating.
access to biomass will come from integrated harvesting operations that provide sawlogs and pulpwood to meet existing market demand, as well as provide biomass for energy. Two other primary resources are considered in this update. Thinnings from other forestland (non-timberland) are conducted to improve forest .

Winrock International, USA and Oxford & IBH Publishing Co, New Delhi, India. IRSG (International Rubber Study Group) Biomass energy has the potential to modernize the agricultural economy and catalyze rural development. The development of efficient biomass handling technology, improvement of agro-forestry systems and establishment of small, medium and large-scale biomass-based power plants can play a major role in rural development.
In summary, production of woody biomass feedstocks, bioenergy, and bio-based products could induce significant socioeconomic impacts, particularly in terms of job and income creation. As such, development of the forest bioenergy and bio-based products industries could serve as a catalyst for rural economic development.
