Need to dispose of your wood waste? Don’t reach for that wood chipper or grinder just yet!
While chipping or grinding wood is a common way to dispose of wood waste, it isn’t exactly the most effective. And this is without mentioning its potential to cause significant environmental harm.
Instead, consider using a portable air curtain incinerator—such as those from Air Burners—to get the job done properly, and in a much more eco-friendly manner. Here are some ways air curtain burners are the superior investment for your wood waste disposal needs, compared to a wood chipper or grinder.
5 Ways to Keep Emissions Down as the World Returns to Work
While recent world events have upended life as we know it, they have also resulted in an unexpected upside: the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions as economies were put on pause and people stopped commuting to work. But as the situation gradually stabilizes, the world is cautiously making plans to help people get back to work. While there are concerns that greenhouse gas emissions will accordingly rise back to their usual levels, this doesn’t have to happen—at least not when it comes to wood waste management, where our air curtain burners can play a role.
Air Curtain FireBoxes: Wood Waste Burners of Today-The Best Disposal Solution!
For those involved in clearing land or managing forests, disposing of wood and vegetative waste is a necessity. Because there are many options, it can be difficult to determine the best disposal solution.

Composting is a consideration, but it is inefficient for the disposal of massive volumes of unwanted wood and has some other significant drawbacks. Finally, there is open pile burning, another common solution that also comes with major problems. When determining which is best for a project at hand, it’s important to understand the pros and cons of each and how each can be useful in a given circumstance.
5 Benefits of Air Curtain Destructors
Whether you are looking to clear land for construction purposes, perform forest fuels management or wildfire rehabilitation, or support natural disaster recovery operation, you’re going to need to dispose of the wood waste you’ll generate in the process. While conventional wood waste disposal methods, such as open pile burning and biomass-to-energy plants, may be popular, they have their limitations. For example, open burning results in considerable air pollution, and biomass-to-energy or cogen plants are few in numbers and can only reasonably accept wood waste from within a 50-mile travel zone.
