    Description

    In the mid 1970's, the accelerated price increases for petroleum products forced rapid exploration into and adoption of alternative energy sources. A viable option for the forest industry was the recovery of woody biomass from unmerchantable trees and logging residues. Several studies estimated that an abundance of such forest materials existed in the southeastern United States (GAO 1981, Ames and Dunavent 1984, Thomas et al. 1986). Other research concentrated on economical methods of converting forest residues into energy for industrial uses.
