DescriptionA biomass crusher/splitter concept is presented as a possible n&ant of tsafntainfng rights-of-way (ROW) or harvesting energy wood plantations. The conceptual system would cut, crush, and split small woody biomass leaving it in windrows for drying. A subsequent operation would bale and transport the dried material for use as an energy source. A survey of twenty southern power companies ROW's shows the potential applicability of a biomass harvesting systa. Drying characteristics and power requirements are presented for three southern tree species.
