Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I bet a dedicated tinkerer like Ford or Edison would pace the floor a bit at night contemplating the possibilities.

Way we do paper here:

Trees are often chipped in situ on the logging site, chips hauled by big trucks  as much as 80 miles, and the paper companies haven't gone under yet.

Here is a glimpse at the EricC and Kissinger Assosiates pilot energy project:

1.Willow pulp run thru bleaching process;80%+-black liquor extracted; DME or DTs produced as an end product, depending on end user preference.

2.Pressed pulp loaded on large conveyor belts by DME powered loaders.

3.Pulp air dries in a large solar kiln and is fed into an electric generating plant boiler 10 miles from the liquor distillery.
