  • Controlling Stack Emissions in the Wood Products Industry & Wood Fired Boilers

    Electrostatic precipitation has been a reliable technology since the early 1900's. Originally developed to abate serious smoke nuisances, the manufacturers of zinc, copper, and lead quickly found electric gas cleaning a cost efficient way to recover valuable product carried out of the stacks from furnace operations. Today electrostatic precipitators are found mainly on large power plants, cement ...

  • 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 ...

  • Tuning In: Tracking wood from Honduran Forests to U.S. Guitars

    This study focuses on two supply chains for mahogany that originate in remote biodiversity-rich forests in Honduras. These supply chains were selected because they involve small forest community cooperatives that, compared with industrial operations, have a lower capacity to respond to market requirements for legal wood, including the U.S. Lacey Act. ...

  • An Integral Model for Wood Auto-ignition under Variable Heat Flux

    A one-dimensional integral model that predicts the auto-ignition time of wood under linearly increasing radiant heat flux is developed. The solution to the integral model for the ignition time is compared with measured data. Reasonable comparative results are shown for the ignition time of wood exposed to different heat flux increase rates (HFIR). Both the solutions and the measured data also ...

  • Tub grinders help city of bakersfield grow wood waste program

    In its early stages, the wood waste recycling program employed by the Solid Waste Division of Bakersfield’s Dept. of Public Works (DPW) was bare bones at best. Implemented as a means to both lower the volume of material going to landfill and, at the same time, generate a product that could be used by area residents, initial volumes collected and processed were relatively low. Processing was ...
