Re: [GreenYes] Wax OCC for Firewood/Logs
Greetings:

I did a quick Web search just out of curiosity.  As I suspected, most
firelogs are made from forest by-products such as sawdust.  However, I was
able to find two intriguing references to firelogs made from OCC:

Wax Box Firelog Corporation (http://waxboxfirelogs.com/)
Mood Maker Firelogs
(http://www.ciwmb.ca.gov/recyclestore/detail.asp?PRODUCTID=1021)

I don't know anything about these companies but I would encourage anyone who
does to share their knowledge with this list.

One further recommendation I would make is that you contact organizations /
agencies active in promoting bioenergy to see what they know.

Sincerely,
