Catskill Forest Association (CFA) has been working hard on a heating project for the Village of Fleischmanns that uses local woody biomass. Woody biomass? We're talking about wood; only the area's most abundant, and renewable natural resource around. However, this isn't your grand-daddy's woodstove. Instead, this system provides heat to an entire village using piped-in hot water through a district heating network. Woodchips are the source of the heat and are used in an extremely energy efficient manner. The system is so efficient that its air emissions would be equivalent to less than six family woodstoves.
