A Glance at Wood-based Biomass Resources

Biomass power is the largest source of renewable energy as well as a vital part of the waste management infrastructure. Woody biomass is the most important renewable energy source if proper management of vegetation is ensured. The main benefits of woody biomass are as follows: Uniform distribution over the world’s surface, in contrast to finite […]

Energy from Woody Biomass

Processing of wood yields by-products and waste streams collectively called residues, which have significant energy potential. A wide range of woody biomass resources are available for transformation into energy in natural forests, rural areas and urban centres. There are many ways to generate electricity from woody biomass using thermo-chemical pathway. These include directly-fired or conventional steam […]

Overview of Wood Wastes

Wood wastes are usually concentrated at the processing factories, e.g. plywood mills and sawmills. The amount of waste generated from wood processing industries varies from one type industry to another depending on the form of raw material and finished product. Type of Wood Wastes The waste resulted from a wood processing is influenced by the […]
