Wood that is unsuitable for products other than fuel amounts to nearly 9 million tons annually.The most likely energy demand by industrial plants that are good candidates for wood fuel systems is 1.5 million tons annually.Maximum projected demand for such plants is 3 million tons per year. The area has a high potential for development of wood energy at favorable costs.
