White Paper-Disaster Recovery and the Role of Air Curtain FireBoxes
Disasters can occur at any given time, at any given location and in a myriad of ways. Mostly of natural origin they can, unfortunately, also be manmade. Natural disasters such as floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, and wind storms or ice storms are common and seasonal. There are also those that are not directly storm related such as earthquakes, wildfires, mudslides from heavy rains, and floods from rising waters caused by excessive melting of snow, ice or glaciers.
When we think of manmade disasters, terror attacks such as bio or agricultural terror often come to mind, but wildfire arson is another sad example. This typically takes the form of fires being set to woodlands willfully or by gross negligence.
There are also disasters caused by engineering errors or aging structures collapsing or causing explosions of oil or gas pipelines. Finally, there are countless occurrences of transportation related accidents involving trains, cars, ships or planes.
Which Land Clearing Equipment is the Best, or is an Air Curtain Burner Machine Better?
When you have a piece of land that needs to be cleared of trees and brush, the first thing you probably think about is what kind of land clearing equipment you will need to buy or rent. Stumps may need a stump puller and a grinder. Dead trees may need a tree cutter. Ground cover may need a mower deck with cutter heads. And deadfall may need a forest bush hog, forest mower or brush mulcher.
White Paper-Biomass: Waste First, Then Fuel
Biomass covers a wide range of organic plant-like matter and depending on the viewpoint is either waste material or a desirable fuel, but can also be both. When we speak of waste, we usually refer to man-made waste, unwanted or discarded matter. Then there is also natural waste; biomass that is part of nature’s life cycle. Ever since life on earth emerged, that natural waste cycle has maintained a balance. Living things die, decompose and are returned to the earth to support new life; that includes woody biomass or trees. Most trees die eventually from old age, as their defenses to fight droughts, disease and insects diminish over decades, and those that don’t, like the Redwood, just keep growing taller and eventually reach a point where gravity counteracts the supply of nutrients up the tree trunk.
