The report compares the use of wood as a fuel for a commercial electric power plant in Vermont, with use of clean fossil fuels or fossil fuels with suitable pollution control technology. Wood fuel was derived from forest surplus; i.e., the tops and branches of trees cut for commercial purposes, cull or noncommercial trees, and waste from forest products industries. The comparison considered boiler technology, pollutant emissions, control technology, energy balance, environmental/ecological impact, and cost.
