8 Messersmith Manufacturing, Inc. Questions to considerFuelWhat fuel is locally available?What is the cost and how will it be transported?Site LocationWhat location is near the existing boiler room?Has sufficient space for new equipment?Has access to roads that can handle large trucks?Messersmith Manufacturing, Inc.
9 Messersmith Manufacturing, Inc. Questions to considerBuildingsWhat type and size structure is needed to house the system?PersonnelWho will operate and maintain the system and what will it cost?Pre-feasibilityCan potential cost savings offset the total cost of the project?Messersmith Manufacturing, Inc.

11 Messersmith Manufacturing, Inc. Krueger lumberIf Krueger Lumber used #2 Heating Oil for the Heating Season to produce same output as on wood chips…Would need: 61,892 gallons of #2 heating oil61,892 gallons x $2.97/gal = $183,819 fuel costMessersmith Manufacturing, Inc.
12 Messersmith Manufacturing, Inc. Krueger lumberIf Krueger Lumber used Wood Chips for the Heating Season to produce same output as on heating oil…Value of wood chips burned was $31,000$183, heating oil$31, wood chips$152, Net fuel cost savings!!Messersmith Manufacturing, Inc.
13 Messersmith Manufacturing, Inc. Krueger lumberAdditional costs with Boiler System:Routine Maintenance – clean out ash - $4,500Repairs - $4,474.64After wood chips, maintenance and repairs still resulting in a cost savings of $143,844.36!Messersmith Manufacturing, Inc.
14 Krueger lumber According to Larry Krueger, “Burning wood waste makes a lot of environmental sense. Burning fossil fuel takes carbon out of the ground and into the atmosphere. With wood, you take the ash from burning, bury it, and put carbon back into the earth. Plus, the fuel source, growing trees, remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. It’s a win, win.”
