  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Vacuuming Wood Dust Can be Hazardous

    It’s well known that wood dust is highly combustible, but the practice of removing it with vacuum trucks can also be dangerous, because of the potential buildup of static electricity. WorkSafeBC has issued a bulletin stating that “static electricity discharges can ignite wood dust and therefore must be eliminated or adequately controlled during vacuuming.” When wood dust or ...

  • 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 ...

  • Turning wood chips and sawdust into a valuable solid fuel

    RUF briquetting units are the economical solution for the processing of wood chips and sawdust. Where timber is planed, turned and sanded, manufacturers end up with large quantities of wood chips and sawdust. By briquetting this material, you can recover a valuable solid fuel. Where large quantities are produced, the single briquette pressing system developed by RUF GmbH is the most economical ...

  • Why Our Buildings Should Be Made From Wood

    If done correctly, using wood for buildings would have a number of environmental benefits without loss of biodiversity or carbon storage capacity. Although it may seem counterintuitive, it would be better if we built buildings from wood than from concrete, brick, aluminium and steel. We use millions of tons of these modern materials every year. They have many ...
