Evaluating near-woods processing of post-harvest forest residues for energy production
Snapshot: Forest Service researchers are evaluating the environmental viability of converting post-harvest forest residues into high-quality bioenergy products, such as briquette and torrefied briquette, as viable fossil fuel replacements using near-woods processing. Use of renewable biofuel products can help mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and other adverse environmental impacts resulting from fossil fuel combustion.
