The Importance of Economic Considerations in Wood Waste Utilization Research
A generous amount of clear economic thinking by the chemist, engineer, or other specialist is necessary at the time waste-utilization studies are being planned and carried out. Such thinking should almost always include a consideration of the approximate quantity, character, and distribution of the waste that is suitable for the manufacture of given products, the probable cost of the waste at the plant, and the probable selling price of the products. Consideration of these items may eliminate certain studies and permit the concentration of effort on ones likely to develop processes that can be useful in plant operation and in wood-waste utilization.
