Wood chips, biomass fuel made from tree bark, wood shavings, miscellaneous plants, and low-value forest wood.
Wood chips are a biomass fuel produced by cutting and shredding various types of wood materials such as tree bark, wood shavings, miscellaneous plants, low-value forest wood, and other non-commercial wood. The wood chipping process creates smaller, more burnable pieces that are easier to store and take up less space than using the entire large block of wood.
Wood chips can be used as a fuel for heating systems, boiler systems, or burners in factories. It can also be used in home heating systems or burners for cooking.
Advantages of using wood chips as an industrial fuel for boilers and burners include:
– Renewable: Wood chips are produced from non-commercial wood sources and can be made from renewable wood types, making it a renewable and environmentally friendly fuel source.
– Resource savings: Wood chips can be produced from wood pieces that are not of high enough quality for use in other products. Using wood chips maximizes the use of wood resources and reduces waste.
– Reduced environmental impact: Using wood chips reduces the environmental impact because it uses wood resources more efficiently. In addition, wood chip production consumes less energy than conventional wood production.
– Increased productivity and efficiency: Wood chips have a uniform size, making them easier to handle and transport than raw wood. This increases productivity and efficiency in the production and transportation of wood.
– Affordable: Wood chips are less expensive than other fuels such as coal and oil, making the use of wood chips cost-effective.
– Easy storage and transportation: Wood chips are smaller in size and easier to store and transport than large pieces of wood.
– This reduces transportation and storage costs.
– Readily available: Wood chips are available in many areas and can be produced from various wood sources, making it an easily accessible and usable fuel source.
– High thermal performance: Wood chips have high heat content and thermodynamic efficiency equivalent to other fuels, increasing production efficiency and saving fuel.
