The wood using industries that receive logs, chips, sawmill residuals, sawdust, micro-chips, and other forest products have dramatically changed in composition in the past 20 years. A pre-2000's era dominated by sawmills and pulp mills as the primary wood users, today includes wood pellet plants of several types and sizes producing a bio-fuel for export, biomass power plants, biomass conversion to produce liquid fuels, and other more exotic methods. What do you need to know about wood, bark and biomass that will help you deliver exactly what these processes need? How can knowing about wood help you to win contracts with demanding buyers?
This webinar is a brief introduction to wood technology at a very basic level that will discuss wood and wood products as feedstocks for pulping but also for pelleting, chemical conversion for fuels, and combustion for electrical power generation.
Webinar presenters included Desmond Smith, Dr Chips Consulting LLC, and Bill Fuller, FRM Consulting.
