Although there are very large amounts of wood waste, yet forestry is not unique in its waste problems; farming and mining have wastes as great or greater in proportion to the main products. Because of the large supplies of wood waste in comparison with the markets for chemicals it is not likely that successful chemical utilization of wood waste will considerably increase the sales value of the waste. This situation is, however, favorable for future utilization developments since it assures the chemical manufacturer a cheap and plentiful supply of raw material.
