    The manufacture of lumber from logs is always accompanied by the accumulation of wood fiber in the form of sawdust, slabs, edgings, trim, and shavings which is of little commercial value. Sawmills use a portion of this "residual" wood fiber for generating steam with which to run the mill and dry kilns, some is used as a raw material for other industries, but much of it is still disposed of in burners.
