The recent focus on bioenergy has led to interest in developing alternative technologies for assessing the fuel value of available biomass resources. In this study, both nearand midinfrared spectroscopic datawere used to predict fuel value in relation to extractives and lignin contents for longleaf pine wood. Samples were analyzed both before and after extraction.Using both nearand mid-infrared spectroscopy, strong correlations were found between fuel value and extractives content for the… CONTINUE READING
