Abstract

The honorable G.F. Gair, Minister of Energy, opened the conference saying the production of wood, meat, milk products, cheese and butter, wood, paper, and other forest products have been the mainstays of New Zealand's economic development. With a growing shortage of liquid fuels which New Zealand imports, he then cited available alternatives the production of heat by direct combustion, the use of biochemical techniques, production of liquid fuels from biomass. Dr. G.F. Serralloch spoke on the need for renewable energy sources and Robert Mann lectured on some of the contraints to energy farming. Many additional papers on the availability and use of biomass as an alternative fuel source are briefly reviewed. (MCW)
