An analysis from the Northern Forest Center has shown that wood pellet fuel may reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than half the amount fossil fuels do.
"This appears to be quite low considering the log demand by the U.S. forest industry," say analysts at Wood Resources International, which publishes the Wood Fiber Review. Citing other statistics derived from log consumption by the forest industry in the U.S. and net log trade, the actual removals of industrial roundwood were probably closer to 411 million cubic meters in 2015, up 10 percent over 2011.
