About the Book:

We are once again in an energy and fuels crisis, with costs escalating dramatically and supplies tight. This has happened before and, once again, the economy and industry will adjust to new conditions. This book is about how to adjust to this difficult situation by using renewables for industrial applications, while cutting operating costs. In addition to providing economic benefits, the switch to renewable wood and agricultural fuels reduces greenhouse gas emissions, as these renewables are assigned a zero greenhouse emission factor and are considered “carbon neutral.”
