Title: Potential for economical recovery of fuel from land clearing residue in interior Alaska.

Author: Sampson, George R.; Ruppert, Forrest A.;

Date: 1983

Source: Res. Pap. PNW-RP-308. Portland, OR: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Forest and Range Experiment Station. 11 p

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Unusable tree and moss residues from land clearing projects in interior Alaska were collected, milled, dried, and densified into fuel logs. Four different combinations of species were tried, and all produced suitable fuels. The feasibility of commercially producing this material into densified fuel in interior Alaska is limited because the fuel logs tend to expand or decompress during winter storage in unheated buildings there.

Keywords: Wood waste utilization, fuel (waste wood), fuel (pressed wood), energy, residues
