4 Abundance of Waste Wood Wood Waste accounts for 17% of total waste received at municipal landfills. 180,000,000 tons of Urban Wood Waste generated annually. More than 40,000,000 tons available for recovery. Landfilling of Wood Waste is expensive for local governments and businesses. Using waste wood as fuel is a less expensive alternative to land filling.

5 Alternatives to Landfills Wood can be used to generate useful thermal output for heating and cooling buildings and for electricity production. Wood can be used to generate useful thermal output for heating and cooling buildings and for electricity production. Wood chips, bark, sawdust and scrap wood account for about 2% of energy used today. Wood chips, bark, sawdust and scrap wood account for about 2% of energy used today.

14 Burning Recycled Tires Wood-fired Boilers can benefit from mixing Tire Derived Fuel (TDF) with wood. Wood-fired Boilers can benefit from mixing Tire Derived Fuel (TDF) with wood. TDF provides 3 times the BTU per pound compared to wood, and the cost per million BTU is less than one-half that of wood. TDF provides 3 times the BTU per pound compared to wood, and the cost per million BTU is less than one-half that of wood. Most wood boilers can safely burn 8% - 20% TDF in the fuel mix. Most wood boilers can safely burn 8% - 20% TDF in the fuel mix. Burning TDF saves valuable landfill space and is cost-effective. Burning TDF saves valuable landfill space and is cost-effective.
