About this book

Woodfuel is not new: wood has been used as a fuel since humans first learned how to make and harness fire. It has always been a major source of energy for heat and light, providing comfort and power. But woodfuel is news again, going through a resurgence, replacing fossil fuels for heat and electricity in an attempt to cut greenhouse gases and other emissions.

Many areas of the world are well ahead in their use of woodfuel and other sustainable energy sources and the UK is in the process of catching up. The forest industry is currently being swamped with requests for information and support from a new and exciting market sector.

This Woodfuel Information Pack brings together key basic information about many aspects of using wood for fuel. These include background on benefits, renewable energy targets and policy, conversion, end users and systems.
