    Incentive Mechanisms: An Application of the Pulp and Paper Sector

    • Mona Jazinaninejad, prés.,
    • Mohammadreza Nematollahi,
    • Azam Shamsi Zamenjani,
    • Alireza Tajbakhsh,

    The study utilizes a combination of quantitative modeling and numerical analysis to identify an appropriate subsidy program for the local government to ensure the truth-telling of pulp and paper mills under the cap-and-trade mechanism using the Lagrange model. The analysis shows that the government helps low-demand and high-demand mills, but the help for the high-demand mill leads to more sustainable decisions.

    Strategic planning of private woodlots in New Brunswick : issues and challenges

    • Jules Comeau, prés., Université de Moncton

    We describe the efforts and challenges of completing a strategic planning process for private woodlots in the Madawaska region of New Brunswick (Canada) using the Woodstock Optimization Studio. We will discuss the process of validating the Woodstock models and present some preliminary results. Multiple private woodlot owner objectives and goals are a main source of uncertainty that is specific to this context and has seen very little treatment in the scientific literature. We briefly discuss the probabilistic optimization methodologies that are likely to be best adapted to this problem.
