Abstract:In the current environment of rising fuel costs the use of wood for energy is becoming increasingly attractive. The present paper examines the economics of burning wet wood and the implications of using wood for fuel rather than for traditional, nonfuel products. Issues discussed include: (1) the effects of moisture content on available heat, (2) the effect of diverting wood from nonfuel markets, and (3) the economics of using logging or manufacturing residues for fuel.
