The government report sees over 18 billion t of plant biomass resources on an area of 175 million hm2. The reserves contain woody oil plants as well as woody high starch – high fiber plants. The oak forest resources, for example, exceed 18 million hm2. An advantage is that barren land is rich in forest resources. As a consequence, the exploitation of these resources applying “clean development mechanisms” according to the Kyoto Protocol is emphasized.
