Wood waste valuation
The following calculator estimates the value of wood waste by a direct comparison of its heat value with that of natural gas, fuel oil or coal. Increased accuracy is possible by specifying the moisture content of the wood waste.
This calculator is based on the calorific value of wood waste and natural gas, fuel oil or coal and standard boiler efficiencies. If the volume of the wood waste is specified standard loose densities are used.
This tool is intended to provide general information and guidance. The figures produced by the tool are estimates only. This calculator was developed by, and remains the property of, SCION and is licensed to EECA for use on this website.Read more
