  • Spatial model for wood energy analysis

    Fuelwood is one of the major fuels for rural households and cottage industries in developing countries. Most of the fuelwood consumed in rural areas come from nearby forests. The estimates on the availability of fuelwood are based on gross national estimates and may not reflect the local conditions. As a result, planning for wood energy supply and consumption becomes an ad hoc process. In this ...

  • Wood briquettes packed full of energy

    Konolt manages its energy output using RUF briquetting machinery Timber processors Konold are improving their energy balance with the help of their RUF briquetting machine. Wood waste is being pressed into briquettes to create a uniform combustible material. The heat they produce is then used for process heating and to heat their premises, with the residual heat being used to generate ...

  • Russia turns to wooded heartlands for clean energy

    Russia’s heated conversations with oil company Shell reminded the world of its new role as one of the world’s major oil and gas producers – the debate centred around control of Sakhalin-2, the largest direct foreign investment project in Russia. It will create the world's biggest liquefied natural gas plant in the far east of Russia. Reports suggest that the Russian government wishes to take a ...

  • Wood instead of petroleum?

    The other day I found an interesting article from Scientists at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) and at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, USA.  The artical discusses how the two recently managed to synthesize two complex chemical substances from wood-based starting materials.  You can find the link here:  Wood instead ...

  • Walki biomass cover: easy cover-up improves drying process and energy content of energy wood

    Logging residue is an inexpensive and easily accessible source of biofuel, but to improve the energy content it must first dry on the ground and after that it can be stored in piles for several months. To shelter the piles from moisture through rain, snow and ice, Walki has developed a paper-based, waterproof cover that can be chipped and burned together with the residue. The importance of ...

  • Focus Bioenergy No 2 2004: Wood fuels - an important part of the energy system

    Today wood fuels are well established in the Swedish energy system. The sector is big, growing fast and can become much larger. Since 1980 wood fuels have five-folded their share in Sweden’s energy provision.This has contributed to a dramatic decline in oil imports. In today’s Sweden, wood fuels stand for some 50 TWh, mainly in the form of heating but also as electricity.The use of wood fuels is ...

  • Energy systems in transition: perspectives for the diffusion of small-scale wood pellet heating technology

    Promising small-scale wood pellet heating systems with sizable market potentials have started to penetrate the residential heating market in Europe and elsewhere. Despite significant technological progress, cost reduction, improved convenience and reliability, and reduced environmental impact, diffusion of such systems will nonetheless take time. Framework and market conditions, and especially ...

  • A brief history of the New England wood pellet

    Steve Walker started his company in 1992. New England Wood Pellet has grown from a single, “little tiny mill” to a 100,000-tonne plant; a research, development, and fabrication facility called Biofuel Energy Systems; and Palmer Reload and Packaging Center, which packages product brought by rail from B.C. Walker’s next initiative is to bring boilers into the US industrial northeast commercial ...

  • Is there romance in energy efficiency?

    My mother told me many good reasons why I should get married. She appears to have forgotten one. It’s energy efficient.Single people – at least those without roommates – appear to be gobbling up a lot of our energy supply. In fact, one person households are a main cause of consumer energy waste, according to a recent study “Consumer Energy Spending and the Demographics of Over-Consumption” by SMR ...

  • Removal mechanism of endosulfan sorption onto wood charcoal

    Endosulfan is among the most widely used pesticides in developing countries and other parts of the world and has been found to contaminate various parts of the environment, including drinking water sources. In an earlier study to find a suitable adsorbent to remove endosulfan, wood charcoal was found to give promising results. In the present study, the process controlling the rate of endosulfan ...

  • Innovators 'home' in on energy

    Fortunately for the rest of us, some people missed the message, the one that says we’re in an economic slide so slippery there is no climbing back up. I had a chance to speak to several of these optimists recently. No, they are not members of the Pollyanna Club; they are green energy entrepreneurs, those who are innovating and growing companies as the rest of the world downsizes. ...

  • Opportunities for energy innovators

    For a long time ‘clean’ and  ‘green’ marked the forward trend in the energy industry. Then came the quest for ‘smart’ energy.  And now ‘innovation’ is the buzzword. It’s easy to see why.  As Americans, we believe our ability to innovate sets us apart in today’s international market.  Sure China can manufacture ...

  • Physical properties of wood pellets from a novel pelletising process

    In this paper a novel pelletising process is described utilising one-axial compression. Compression tests of saw dust samples were conducted at different applied forces, moisture contents, process temperatures and hold up times using a compression cell powered by an Instron testing machine. Additionally the effect of heating in saturated and unsaturated atmosphere was studied. The densities of ...

  • Energy and the world: a physicist's view

    The evolution of human societies depends upon the availability of energy resources. Since the word energy does not have the same meaning for physicists and the general public, this point is clarified first. Then, a selection of energy and societal problems are reviewed. Although energy per se does not drive society, it has played a major role in the successive industrial revolutions which have ...
