Technical Note SB08: Producing quality wood fuel

Biomass derived from any source will probably require treatment before it can be sold and delivered as a solid biofuel. The biomass may require chipping or shredding from large material to the size required by a customer.

Solid biofuels may be derived from wood, agricultural herbaceous crop residues, or urban wood. It is generally referred to as wood fuel because wood is the most common source of biomass. Treatment from raw source biomass into fuel may require sieving to get the specified particle size, drying to the required moisture content, and removal of fines and contaminants.
