Wooden Biofuels in Europe - Quantities and Corrosion Relevant Characteristics

C. Schmidl, G. Friedl, W. Haslinger, S. Humel, M. Schwabl & B. Voglauer
In a pre-normative research project on the corrosion load of flue gas from biomass combustion on metal chimney systems, the European wooden biofuel market was studied with respect to quantities and corrosion relevant properties. A methodology for estimating European wood fuel tree species by combining data from different statistical sources has been developed. Results indicate that France with an annual consumption of more than 40 Mm³ of wood for household energy production is leading, followed...
