Which wood disposal option is best for your utility?
Our expert team will help you identify a more environmentally friendly disposal option that is also cost efficient.
Option 1 — Biomass Fuel
Untreated wood waste (pallets, reels, etc.) or wood treated with creosote both make for excellent biomass fuel. Combustion of these materials can be used to generate either steam or electricity. Biomass facilities range from energy-intensive private industries (e.g. cement manufacturers) to local and regional energy providers. During this process wood waste is chipped to specific sizes and transported on-site to the chosen facility.
