Fuel Supply Planning for Small-Scale Biomass Heating Systems
Abstract:The Fuels for Schools and Beyond initiative partners have gained experience assisting with installation and fuel supply planning for woody biomass heating systems in six western states. In attempting to use forest management waste or slash that would otherwise be piled and burned, the partners are promoting changes in currently available biomass systems technology and current forest practices. The many benefits of forest biomass heat can be realized today with careful communication about fuel supply specifications. Guidance based on the partners' experience in fuel supply planning and defining fuel specifications is presented.
