    Description

    Residues should be thought of as a raw material for specific uses rather than as a waste. Fines and solid wood residues are usually kept separated in waste-collection system, but species are rarely kept separated. The properties of each species dictate what uses can be made of them. Quantity, location, cost, moisture content, physical size, and presence of foreign matter should be known if the raw material is to be marketed for a specific use. Each kind of residue has certain potentials for use. Case examples cited indicate how firms are marketing their residues.
