Abstract

In this overview of wood for use in the production of bio-fuels, various sources are considered: fast growing tree crops (e.g. poplar), the products of pruning operations and of thinning in woods along river banks, and of maintenance carried out in hedgerows, windbreaks and river beds. Tables show...
