Abstract
Field tests were conducted to determine the cost and productivity of a preproduction prototype model of a container system used to recover roadside biomass in mountainous terrain. The system recovered 82 m**3 of biomass per eight-hour shift. Load size averages 20.5 m**3 with a cycle time of 2 hours from the tests it is conservatively estimated that the recovery cost will be $8.32/m**3. With a production model of the container system fully integrated into the logging process it may be possible to achieve costs of $4.55/m**3. The cost of the conventional system (logging truck and choker skidder) used to recover roadside biomass is 15.51/m**3.

Abstract
Under the Canadian Governments Energy from the forest (ENFOR) program, two prototype machines for recovering forest residues from logging sites were built. The Recufor was designed to recover the logging residue left on the forest floor, comminute this material into size suitable for handling, and transport it to roadside. Some of the design principles of the Recufor were adapted for the logging residue processor (LRP) which was developed as a self-propelled machine to recover and reduce the residues left at roadside after full tree delimbing operations. The design, development and field trials of these prototype machines are covered in this report.

Abstract
This report was prepared under the auspices of the ENFOR (Energy from the Forest) Program of the Canadian Forestry Service. It investigated compaction as an addition to comminution, or as an alternative to comminution, as a practical and economical means for handling transporting and processing logging residues so that they can become a greater source of energy in Canada.

Abstract
This study was carried out under the auspices of the International Energy Agency, Forest Energy Group C. One of the major objectives of the IEA is to provide co-operation among IEA Participants development of alternative energy sources and through energy related research and development. This report is a state-of-the-art review of the equipment used for the preparation of forest biomass for optimum conversion into energy.
