I was wondering if someone knows of a study done that outlines the extra energy from wood required to burn seasoned wood(20% mc as an example)vs unseasoned wood(30%+ mc) through a gasification boiler. The wood in question is 35-40% mc, and the operator believes that his boiler should be able to efficiently burn at that high mc. I'm thinking his poor gasification flame and short burn times are a direct result of the wet fuel. What we'd like to know is just how many btu's he is losing trying to boil out the extra moisture. He doesn't think he's losing too many. I believe he's losing a boatload. Is there a link someone could provide? Thanks!
