This study presents the comparison between agricultural and forest resources related to the needs of thermochemical processes. 234 samples (133 agricultural and 101 forestry) from two years (2007 and 2008-) were selected and analysed with standard methods and common methodologies. For thermochemical processes, the levels of criteria elemental composition (carbon, hydrogen and oxygen) do not pose any problem. For nitrogen, two groups are clearly formed with a first group composed of grasses and summer annuals...
