Bio Oil (Wood Residue) - Avoided emissions

Hi,

I'm calculating the carbon intensity of Bio Oil produced from wood residue with 5.02b.
I have a question regarding displaced emissions by avoiding landfilling. Inside sheet "Coprods" cell B49, I choose Branches (68 gCH4/kg) but Upstream Results returns 0 for avoided emissions. 
The only way I found to get a result different from 0 is to manually replace the content of cell J114 inside "Input" sheet switching "Wood Residue" by "Standing Timber".

Because of Upstream Result DV19 formula:
=-IF(Input!J114="Standing Timber";'Fuel Char'!D133*'Equip Emis Factors'!DY25*(Input!E50);0)

Is this normal to manually switch this value or avoided emissions should remain 0 for Bio Oil from wood residue ? 

Thank you.

The model considers wood residues to be a waste product and thus there are no emissions or emission credits associated with the material.

Avoided landfill emissions have not been considered for wood residues in the model.
