The Professor also points out this process of using woody-bio mass is a high-level conservation process. “The beauty of this is, the woody bio-mass that we are talking about, the bark portion of the wood itself, can be used to supply the energy required for the process, the steam and electric power. It becomes kind of self-sufficient and reduces our demand for fossil fuel. We are very excited and very optimistic”, he said.
Down side (assuming this is legit in process and net energy)? Do we have enough forest product/ag waste to offset oil use?
