The report examines the technology and the environmental aspects of the use of surplus wood as an industrial fuel. It includes a review of various wood-burning technologies and a listing of existing facilities. Information on operational problems obtained through site visits is summarized. Estimates are presented of the reduction of sulfur dioxide emissions achieved by burning wood instead of coal or oil. Industrial fuel requirements are compared with the quantities of unused wood residues available on both regional and national levels. Ecological impacts of wood residue utilization and non-technical barriers to the use of wood fuel are explored.
