However, emission problems remain where older equipment is deployed. 4 Ash from wood As biomass is burned, the inorganic components form ash – an alkaline compound of plant nutrients. Depending on temperature, only nitrogen and some of the trace elements escape during combustion. Ash itself is undesirable, and removal from flue gas and furnaces can cause disposal problems (Centre for Biomass Technology 1999). Hardwoods produce more ash than softwoods, and tropical hardwoods generally produce more ash than temperate hardwoods.
