Costa Rica - Forest residues utilization study : Technical report (English)

The objectives of the forest residues utilization project are to: (a) determine the economic feasibility of utilizing land clearing and logging residue for: (i) direct substitution for imported fuels in the industrial sector; (ii) conversion to charcoal for energy uses in the industrial sector; (iii) conversion to charcoal for export; (b) define the available technical options for the residues utilization; (c) compare and evaluate the residue utilization options, including possible higher value non-energy uses; and (d) recommend a residue utilization plan. The main potential market for unconverted forest residues is in urban areas, but due to transport costs, unconverted forest residues will not be able to compete with the fuelwood presently available to the urban population.
