For the past two decades there has been an extensive interest in utilising renewable energy in an attempt to decrease the use of fossil fuels such as coal and oil. During these past 20 years, the solar and wind industries have made technical advances to be even more viable alternatives with better efficiencies. Biomass fuels have also seen considerable interest for thermal and power projects worldwide, however the fuels have changed considerably from the traditional biomass fuels of wood chips, hogged wood, bark, and sawdust that dominated the forest products industry for the past century. Today’s renewable biomass based fuels are derived from agricultural refuses, reconstituted wood refuse from residential and commercial demolition and process refuse such as the solids remaining from lignin ethanol production.
