Wood processing residues as fuel
Where wood processing residues are insufficient to meet the fuel demand for a biomass fuelled boiler then alternative fuel supplies need to be considered. One fuel to consider is forest residues at landings and skid sites within the forests. Providing factors affecting supply are appropriately evaluated then these forest residues can be a cost effective fuel. The following link describes a hypothetical assessment of the potential supply and cost of forest residues to a bioenergy plant.
