The process of forest wood burning is well understood.
The process involves a process called pyrolysis, where wood is heated to a temperature of around 700 degrees Celsius and then burnt.
The pyro process is not unique to Australia.
The United States is also a big exporter of wood, as it’s the world’s largest wood producer.
There are also many other countries where wood burning for use as a biofuel is widespread, including Indonesia, China, Malaysia, Vietnam and India.
The cost of this process is estimated to be about $3 per tonne, which means a single kilo of wood can be worth around $300.
In the past, Australians have been using wood as a primary fuel source for cars, but the process has been slowly phased out.
In 2011, a study by the University of Western Australia found that Australia’s emissions from burning wood fell by 10 per cent between 2000 and 2010.
The study also found that burning wood for biofuels had a greater impact on air quality than burning fossil fuels.
