Elaeis oleifera is a species of palm commonly called the American oil palm . It is native to South and Central America from Honduras to northern Brazil .    
Unlike its relative Elaeis guineensis , the African oil palm, it is rarely planted commercially to produce palm oil , but hybrids between the two species are,  mainly in efforts to provide disease resistance and to increase the proportion of unsaturated fatty acids. oil. 
Elaeis guineensis is a species of palm commonly called African oil palm or macaw fat .  It is the main source of palm oil . It is native to west and southwest Africa , specifically the area between Angola and the Gambia ; the species name guineensis Refers to the name for the area, Guinea , and not the modern country qui now bears That Name. The species is also now naturalized in Madagascar , Sri Lanka , Malaysia , Indonesia, Central America , the West Indies and several islands in the Indian and Pacific Oceans . The étroitement related American oil palm Elaeis oleifera and has more distantly related palm, Attalea maripa , sont également used to Produce palm oil.
Attalea maripa , commonly called maripa palm  is a palm native to tropical South America and Trinidad and Tobago . It grows up to 35 m (115 ft) tall and can-have leaves or fronds 10-12 m (33-39 ft) long. This plant has a yellow edible fruit which is oblong ovoid and cream . An edible oil can be extracted from the fruit of the kernel of the seed.
Attalea is a large genus of palms native to Mexico , the Caribbean , Central and South America . This pinnately leaved, non-spiny genus includes both small palms lacking an aboveground stem and large trees. The genus has a complicated taxonomic history, and has often been split into four or four generations. Since the genera can only be distinguished on the basis of their male flowers, the existence of intermediate flower types and the existence of hybrids between different generations has been used as an argument for keeping them all in the same genus. This has been supported by a recent molecular phylogeny.
Elaeis (from Greek, meaning ‘oil’) is a genus of palms containing two species, called oil palms. They are used in commercial agriculture in the production of palm oil. The African oil palm Elaeis guineensis (the species name guineensis referring to its country of origin) is the principal source of palm oil. It is native to west and southwest Africa, occurring between Angola and Gambia. The American oil palm Elaeis oleifera (from Latin oleifer, meaning ‘oil-producing’) is native to tropical Central and South America, and is used locally for oil production.
Cadang-cadang is a disease caused by Coconut cadang-cadang viroid (CCCVd), a lethal viroid of coconut ( Cocos nucifera ), anahaw ( Saribus rotundifolius ) buri ( Corypha utan ), and African oil palm ( Elaeis guineensis ). The name cadang-cadang comes from the word gadang-gadang that means dying in Bicol .  It was originally reported on San Miguel Island in the Philippines in 1927/1928. “By 1962, all but 100 of 250,000 palms on this island had died from the disease,” indicating an epidemic. Every year one million coconut palms are killed by CCCVd and over 30 million coconut palms have been killed since Cadang-cadang has been discovered. CCCVd directly affects the production of copra , a raw material for coconut oil and animal feed. Total losses of about 30 million palms and annual yield losses of about 22,000 tons of copra have been attributed to Cadang-cadang disease in the Philippines. 
The red ring disease of coconuts and African oil palms is caused by the nematode Bursaphelenchus cocophilus . It is also identified in literature with an alternative scientific name Rhadinaphelenchus cocophilus . The common name, the red ring nematode, is derived from its distinguishing symptom.

History of THCF
THCF has produced over 800 episodes of live TV programs from the Cannabis Common Sense TV show .  THCF is also the main sponsor of Hempstalk in Portland, Oregon which is celebrating their 11th anniversary as a yearly dedicated festival to promoting hemp and cannabis.
In 1991, THCF began publishing an online newspaper called Hemp News,  which is the oldest online publication still published today.  Hemp News is also printed in Spanish. 
THCF, along with The Campaign for the Restoration and Regulation of Hemp (CHRC), Was Responsible for Placing Oregon’s Measure 80 to legalize hemp and marijuana on the ballot in 2012. Ballot Measure 80 received 47% of the Oregon vote  in November 2012.
In 2012, THCF helped Willie Nelson get his Oregon medical marijuana permit. THCF’s entourage provides their Oregon medical marijuana permits.  It was during this time that Nelson Stanford asked for the support of a proposed initiative to legalize marijuana in Oregon that was sponsored by THCF. Nelson appeared in a 30-second public service announcement in support of the Oregon Cannabis Tax Act ballot initiative. 
Since the year 1999, THCF has opened medical clinics in 12 states.  250,000 patients have gone through medical marijuana.  THCF also has medical marijuana gardens in Oregon and Washington where marijuana production is legal, and the medicine from these gardens has won many awards at Cannabis Cup annual events. 
On May 24, 2007 the DEA along with the Federal Government and federal prosecutor James Hagerty filed a subpoena for the medical records of 17 individuals, 14 of which were patients who had received medical marijuana permits from a THCF clinic. Eleven of the patients who were named in the subpoena were legally registered patients with the State of Oregon’s Department of Human Services medical marijuana program. The subpoena requested that the State of Oregon turn over the THCF patients’ private medical records to the government.  Eventually a federal judge sided with THCF and the State of Oregon and granted a motion to quash both subpoenas. “Absent a showing further Top of necessity and relevance, compliance with the subpoena Would significant impact State and medical privacyInterest and is unreasonable, “wrote Judge Robert H. Whaley of the US Eastern District Court of Washington.

In 1998 the University of Hawaii, partnered with the University of California at Berkeley, received a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF), for their proposal to develop commercial, medical, and industrial uses of microalgae, as well as more efficient techniques for cultivation. This grant was used to form Marine Bioproduct Engineering Center (MarBEC), a facility operating within the University of Hawaii at Manoa, but connected to corporate interests.
Scenedesmus dimorphus is a freshwater unicellular green algae in the class Chlorophyceae . The name means “having two forms”. 
Prymnesium parvum is a species of haptophytes (= Prymnesiophyta). The species is of concern because of its ability to produce a toxin, prymnesin . It is a flagellated algae that is normally found suspended in the water column. It was first identified in North America in 1985 and was artificially (eg, invasive species or missed in previous surveys). Toxin production mainly kills fish and appears to have little effect on cattle or humans. This distinguishes it from red tide , which are algal bloom whose toxins lead to harmful effects in people. Although no harmful effects are known, it is recommended to consume dead or dying fish exposed to a P. parvumbloom. Prymnesium parvum of Haptophyta is sometimes termed a golden algae or a golden brown algae. Chrysophyceae of Heterokontophyta but the taxonomy of algae is under complex revision leading to contradictions in terms of non-scholarly texts such as those of state wildlife departments.
Pleurochrysis carterae is a marine species of unicellular coccolithophorid algae that has the ability to calcify subcellularly.

Pleurochrysis carterae produce heterococcoliths which are composed of crystal units of variable shapes and sizes.
Phaeodactylum tricornutum is a diatom . It is the only species in the genus Phaeodactylum . Unlike other diatoms P. tricornutum can exist in different morphotypes ( fusiform , triradiate, and oval), and exchange in cell shape can be stimulated by environmental conditions.  This feature can be used to explore the molecular basis of cell shape control and morphogenesis. Unlike most diatoms P. tricornutum can grow in the absence of silicon, and it can survive without making silicified frustules. This provides opportunities for experimental exploration of silicon-based nanofabrication in diatoms.
Neochloris oleoabundans is a microalga belonging to the class Chlorophyceae . Due to its high lipid content, it has been considered as a candidate organism for cosmetics  and biofuelproduction,  as well as feedstock for freshwater mussels . 
Neochloris was first isolated from a sand dune in Saudi Arabia by S. Chantanachat sometime between 1958-1962. 
Isochrysis galbana is a species of haptophytes. It is the species species of the genus Isochrysis . It is an outstanding food for various bivalve larvae. and is now widely cultured for use in the bivalve aquaculture industry.  This unicellular is investigated for its high amount of Fucoxanthin (18.23 mg / g dried sample).  The Isochrysis galbana extract is said to have some cosmetic and hair-growth properties when using hexane , ethyl acetate , ethanol , water , methanol , goldisopropanol as extractants . 
Expeller pressing (also called Expired oil pressing ) is a mechanical method for extracting oil from raw materials trademarked by Anderson International Corp. Mr. Valerius D. Anderson founded the Anderson VD Company in Cleveland, Ohio in 1888. In 1900, Mr. VD Anderson created the first successful ever-operated Expeller press.  The raw materials are squeezed under high pressure in a single step. When used for the extraction of food oils, nuts , seeds and algae, which are supplied to the press in a continuous feed. As the raw material is pressed, friction causes it to heat up; in the case of harder nuts, which can be found at 120 ° F (49 ° C).
Botryococcus braunii (Bb) is a green, pyramid-shaped planktonic microalga that is of potential importance in the field of biotechnology . Colonies held together by a lipid biofilm matrix can be found in tropical gold or oligotrophic lakes and estuaries, and will bloom when in the presence of elevated levels of inorganic dissolved phosphorus. The species is notable for its ability to produce high amounts of hydrocarbons , especially in the form of triterpenes , which are typically around 30-40% of their dry weight. Compared to other green algae species it has a relatively thick cell wall that is accumulated from previous cellular divisions; making of cytoplasmic components rather difficult. Fortunately, much of the useful hydrocarbon oil is outside of the cell. 
Algal nutrient solutions are made of a mixture of chemical salts and water. Nutritional solutions, along with carbon dioxide and light, provide the materials needed for growing to. Nutrient solutions, as opposed to fertilizers, are designed specifically for use in aquatic environments and their composition is much more accurate.
Algae fuel , algal biofuel , or algal oil is an alternative to liquid fossil fuels that uses algae as its source of energy-rich oils. Also, algae fuels are an alternative to commonly known biofuel sources, such as corn and sugarcane.   Several companies and government agencies are funding efforts to reduce capital and operating costs and make algae fuel production commercially viable.  Like fossil fuel, algae fuel releases CO 2 when burnt, but unlike fossil fuel, algae fuel and other biofuels only release CO 2recently removed from the atmosphere via photosynthesis as the algae or plant grew. The energy crisis and the world food crisis -have ignited interest in algaculture (farming algae) for making biodiesel and other biofuels using Unsuitable land for agriculture. Among algal fuels’ attractive characteristics are That They Can be grown with minimal impact is fresh water resources,   Can Be Produced using saline and wastewater ,-have a high flash points ,  and are biodegradable and Relatively harmless to the environment if spilled.  Algae cost more per unit mass than other second-generation biofuel crops due to high capital and operating costs,  but is claimed to yield between 10 and 100 times more fuel per unit area.  The United States Department of Energy estimates that if it were algae fueled in the United States, it would require 15,000 square miles (39,000 km 2 ), which is only 0.42% of the US map,  or about half of the land area of Maine . This is less than 1 / 7 the area of corn harvested in the United States in 2000. 
The following table shows the vegetable yields of common energy crops associated with biodiesel production. This is unrelated to ethanol production , which is related to starch , sugar and cellulose content instead of oil yields.

Most species of this genus have been studied with the exception of Camelina sativa , historically cultivated as oil plant . Heinrich Johann Nepomuk von Crantz was the first botanist to use the genus CamelinaIn a classification published in December 2016 , the US Navy tested a 50-50 mix of jet fuel and fuel derived from camelina seeds in 2010.  kerosene-based jet fuel makes it cost-prohibitive for commercial airlines to use camelina-based jet fuel. The study said that it would be necessary to have a market share of 9 percent government subsidy on camelina crop production, with 9 percent tax on the fuel oil. 
The Thunder Bay Generating Station (“Thunder Bay GS”) is a biomass- powered power station owned by Ontario Power Generation (“OPG”). It is located on Mission Island in Thunder Bay , on the shore of Lake Superior . 
Operating since 1963, Thunder Bay GS was the last coal fired station in Ontario. The plant was shut down in April 2014 as part of Ontario’s phase out of coal-fired electricity generation.   It was converted to run on advanced biomass (wood pellets) and recommissioned on February 9, 2015. 
Atikokan Generating Station is a biomass power plant owned by OPG (OPG) Located 8 km (5 mi) north of Atikokan , Ontario (190 km (118 mi) west of Thunder Bay ). The plant employs 90 people. The Atikokan Generating Station Began operation as a coal-fired station in 1985 and underwent an overhaul in the autumn of 2003.
Until 2012, it had one coal fueled generation unit with low sulfur oxide (NOx) burners, providing a peak output of 230 MW fired by low sulfur lignite coal from Western Canada . In late 2012, the facility is powered down and underwent renovations, by the Ontario government’s initiative to eliminate all coal-fired electricity generation.  It is the first generating station to be converted by OPG to be fueled by biomass,  and is North America’s largest purely biomass-fueled power plant.  The conversion came at a cost of C $ 200 million, and the plant was re-opened on September 10, 2014.  
A splitting maul also known as a block buster , block splitter , sledge axis , go-devil or hamax is a heavy, long-handled axis used for splitting a piece of wood along its grain. One side of its head is like a sledgehammer , and the other side is like an axis.
- Wedged mauls
- A typical wood splitting has a weight of 6 to 8 lb or approximately 2.7 to 3.6 kg, respectively. Traditionally, they have a wedge -shaped head, but some modern versions have conicalheads or swiveling sub-wedges. The original maul resembles an axis but with a broader head. For splitting wood, this tool is much better than a typical axis. The weight of it is more important and less expensive, it is less likely to become stuck in the wood. The wedge section of the head must be slightly concave-section that can be concave-sectioned. Unlike an axis, maul handles are normally straight and closer to the elongated oval axis handles tend to be. A maul’s handle, unlike an axis, is intentionally used for levering and swinging. The handles are typically made from hickory, though synthetic fiberglass handles have become common. Plastic handles are more difficult to break and their factory-attached heads are less likely to work with the lifting action of a maul. In the early 1970s a triangular head design with an unbreakable metal handle was introduced called “Monster Maul.”
- Separate wedges
- Splitting can also be done with a separate wedge and a large hammer. As this allows several wedges to be used together, To avoid mushrooming the head of the wedge, they are driven to a heavy wooden mallet rather than an iron hammer. In parts of England the word “maul” denotes this tool with a very heavy wooden head. It is also known as a beetle; There is a River Thames at Moulsford called the Beetle and Wedge .
- Powered log splitters
- Hydraulic log splitters are commonly used today. They can be horizontal or vertical.
The maul is most commonly struck to a flush-cut section of log, usually standing on end at a splitting stump or other suitable basis. Most cut sections can be split into a single downward chop of the maul, splitting the wood apart along its grain. Mauls regularly becomes stuck in the log for one of several reasons, such as the wood not being struck with adequate force, the wood containing hidden knots, or the length of wood being too long. Unlike an axis mauls are effective after-along the edge dulls, as the primary mechanism Is That of a wedge through Pushed along the wood grain, and not a cross-grain chop of an axis. In some cases, they can be split while they are still length-wise on the base or ground. Mauls often become stuck in a mid-split request for “full-lift” chop to be used. This involves the chopper reswinging the maul, but this time the half- split log while still attached to the embedded maul, often requires one or two additional full-lift chops. Another technique for splitting upright is the thickness of the thickness of the log, usually removing 1/4 of the mass of the log. When repeated, large logs that would ordinarily cause the maul to be embedded on a center-strike can be handled easily. Additionally, the temperature gets colder, the fibers in the log become easier.
The hammer side of the maul is often used in wood splitting when combined with a splitting wedge, driving the wedge into the wood in the same fashion as the maul itself. This is used when attempting to split logs with a large diameter. Modern mauls are made of a strong enough steel to withstand the metal-to-metal contact without chipping. However, it is still common for the wedge itself to chip off. This can be dangerous as it can be damaged. This is also the easiest way to break a maul’s handle because the wedge is a whole lot, and can be overshot, resulting in hitting full-force on the wedge. This greatly weakens the handle, and can cause it to break after only a few over-shots.
Harder seasoned logs which are often divided into two parts of each other at a given speed, which is a hazard for people or objects nearby.
A common danger for inexperienced splitters is to miss the upright log entirely or give it to a glancing blow. If the maul lands beyond the log, the maul handles may or bounce or break. If the lands in front of the log, it can hit the feet of the splitter if they are in a closed stance. If the maul hits the side of the log without biting, the maul will usually bounce to one side and to the ground. In this situation, even a widened stance may still leave the splitter’s feet vulnerable.
When performing the “full-lift” chop described above, the splitter must never raise the maul and log above his head.
Generally speaking, a maul should never swing to the side. Rather it should be powered through the drop, using force to assist the natural weight of the maul. In addition to a suitable splitting base is one of the most important components to splitting wood with a maul. Wood can be split directly off the ground, but this is a disadvantage for a few reasons. For one the ground, if not frozen, will give on each blow, thus weakening the overall effect of the blow. The second disadvantage is that it can be broken down into a low level, forcing the person to fall back on the swing, which causes back fatigue. The best bases are flush-cut segments of hardwood logs, usually about one foot tall. For the season, the open grain may be treated slightly.
Another technique to improve safety involves pinning the head of the maul to the handle. Repeated use can loosen the head, and if the wedge or expander fails, the head will fly from the handle. Placing a pin involves drilling a small diameter hole through the side of the maul, and through the handle, and usually out the other side. A small, flush, or counter-sunk pin of aluminum or similar material should be placed in the head and secured. It is critical that the pin protrude from the side of the maul head.

Scheitholz is a German term for log sections that have been split length with an axis or log splitter and that are primarily used for firewood or the manufacture of wood shingles . The individual pieces of timber are called Holzscheite (obs .: Holzscheiter ), derived from the Old High German word scit = “piece”.
Scheitholz boilers are used to burn quantities of Scheithölzer . The term“auf Scheitholz knien ” ( “to kneel there scheitholz ) Was a disciplinary measure used in times WhenCorporal punishment in schools was still permitted. 
A log splitter is a piece of machinery or equipment used for splitting firewood from softwood or hardwood logs that have been pre-cut into sections (rounds), usually by chainsaw or a saw bench. Many log splitters Consist of a hydraulic or electrical rod and piston assembly and thesis are Often rated by the tones of strength They Can generate. The higher the pressure rating, the greater the thickness of the rounds that can be split. The log splitter consists of all four major hydraulic components.
Most models have a 10 ton tone, but professional hydraulic models can exert 30 tons of force or more. There are also manual log splitters, which use mechanical leverage to force logs to a sharpened blade assembly and screw or ‘corkscrew’ types that are driven directly from an agricultural tractor’s power take-off shaft where the splitter is mounted to the linkage point.
A firewood processor is a machine designed to cut and split firewood with minimal manual handling of the logs. There are typically four parts of the machine, each dedicated to a separate function. Processing begins with a log stack – a stack of logs of 10-12 feet (3.0-3.7 m). Popular brands include Hakki Pilke, Wood Beaver, DYNA, Multitek and Blockbuster. Many individuals use processors commercially and privately as a hobby. Others choose to rent as an alternative to purchasing.
Firewood is any wooden material that is collected and used for fuel . Generally, firewood is not highly processed and is in some form of recognizable log or branch form, compared to other forms of wood fuel like pellets or chips. Firewood can be seasoned (dry) or unseasoned (fresh / wet). It can be classified as hardwood or softwood .
Firewood is a renewable resource . However, demand for this fuel can be expanded to a local level. Firewood can improve local wood supplies.
A cord is an informal unit of volume for stacked firewood,  sometimes called a rick . 
Width and height is typically the same as a string , but the depth can vary.  The front face is the same as a string (4’x8 ‘), hence the name. The depth is generally 16 “(for use in residential fireplaces) but can be anything from 12 inches to 32 inches.

Pellet fuels (or pellets ) are biofuels made from compressed organic matter or biomass.  Pellets can be made of any of the following general categories of biomass: industrial waste and co-products, food waste , agricultural residues , energy crops, and virgin lumber .  Wood pellets are the most common type of pellet fuel and are made from compacted sawdust  and related industrial products of the milling of lumber, manufacture of wood products and furniture , andconstruction . [ citation needed ] Other industrial waste sources include empty bunches, palm kernel shells, coconut shells, and tree tops discarded during logging operations.   So-called “black pellets” are made of biomass , refined to resemble hard coal and have been developed into existing coal-fired power plants .  Pellets are categorized by their heating value , moisture and ashcontent, and dimensions. They can be used as power generation, commercial or residential heating, and cooking .  Pellets are extremely dense and can be produced with a low moisture content (below 10%) that allows them to be burned with a very high combustion efficiency . 
Wood fuel (or fuelwood ) is a fuel, such as firewood , charcoal , chips , sheets, pellets , and sawdust . Source, quantity, quality and application. In many areas, wood is the most readily available form of fuel, requiring tools in the box of picking up dead wood, or just tools, as in any industry, specialized tools, such as skidders and hydraulic wood splitters, have been developed to mechanize production. Sawmill waste and construction industry by-productsalso include various forms of lumber tailings. The discovery of how to make fire is considered to be one of the most important advances. The use of wood as a fuel source for heating is much older than civilization and is assumed to be used by Neanderthals . Today, burning of wood is the largest use of energy derived from a solid fuel biomass . Wood fuel can be used for cooking and heating , and sometimes for fueling steam engines and steam turbines that generate electricity . Wood may be used indoors in a furnace,stove , or fireplace , gold outdoors in a furnace, campfire , gold bonfire .
Woodchips are a medium-sized solid material made by cutting, gold chipping, larger pieces of wood .
Woodchips can be used as a biomass solid fuel and raw material for producing wood pulp . They can also be used as an organic mulch in gardening , landscaping , ecological restoration , bioreactors for denitrification and mushroom cultivation. According to the different chemical and mechanical properties of the masses, the wood logs are mostly peeled, and the bark chips and the wood chips are processed in different processes. The process of making wood chips is called woodchipping and is done with a woodchipper .
A wood gas generator is a gasification unit which converts timber or charcoal into a gas , a syngas consisting of atmospheric nitrogen , carbon monoxide , hydrogen , traces of methane , and other gases, which – after cooling and filtering – can then be used to power an internal combustion engine or for other purposes. Historically wood gas generators were often mounted on vehicles , but present studies and developments focused mostly on stationary plants.
Gasification HAD beens year and significant common technology qui Was Widely used to generate coal gas from coal Mainly for lighting Purposes During the 19th and early 20th century. When the first stationary internal combustion engines based on the Otto cycle became available in the 1870s, they began displacing their engines and causing them to lose power. Adoption accelerated after the Otto engine is patent expired in 1886. The potential and practical applicability of gasification to internal combustion engines are well understood from the earliest days of their development.
Wood briquettes are made of dry, untreated wood chips (eg wood shavings). They are pressed with high pressure without any binder . By compacting the wood with this high pressure, it turns into a fuel like brown coal .
One advantage of wood briquettes is that they have a lower ash and sulfur content, compared to fossil fuels . The carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) balance is even, Because wood briquettes release just as much CO 2 to the atmosphere as the trees used for Their Production ounce absorbed through growth by photosynthesis . In addition, briquettes have a much higher energy content.
A pellet stove is a stove that burns compressed wood or biomass pellets to create a source of heat for residential and sometimes industrial spaces. By steadily feeding fuel from a storage container (hopper) in a burn pot area, it produces a constant flame that requires little to no physical adjustments. Today’s central heating systems operate with wood pellets as a renewable energy source can reach an efficiency factor of more than 90%.
Industrially, the correct term is wood dust . In everyday language, it is known as sawdust . Sawdust or wood dust is a by-product or waste product of woodworking operations such as sawing, milling, planing, routing, drilling and sanding. It is composed of fine particles of wood.
These operations can be performed by woodworking machinery, portable power tools or by use of hand tools. Wood dust is also the byproduct of certain animals, birds and insects which live in wood, such as the woodpecker and carpenter ant . It can present a hazard in manufacturing industries, especially in terms of its flammability. Sawdust is the main component of particleboard. Wood dust is a form of particulate matter, or particulates . Research on wood dust health hazards within the field of occupational health science, and study of wood dust control within the field of indoor air quality engineering.
A firelog is a manufactured log constructed to be used as fuel wood . Firelogs are designed to be inexpensive, while being easier to ignite, and burn longer, and more efficiently than firewood . Firelogs are traditionally manufactured using two methods. The first uses only compressed sawdust and the second uses sawdust and paraffin , which is mixed and extruded into a log shape. The extruded firelogs are individually wrapped in paper and can be ignited.
The European Biomass Association (AEBIOM, from the official French name European Association for Biomass ) is a European trade association open to national biomassassociations and bioenergy companies active in Europe . AEBIOM was founded in 1990 and aims to promote biomass production and application throughout Europe.
AEBIOM is the umbrella organization of the European Pellet Council (EPC),  the European Industry of Pellet Suppliers (EIPS) and the International Biomass Torrefaction Council (IBTC).

Wood is a porous and fibrous structural tissue found in the stems and roots of trees and other woody plants . It is an organic material , a natural composite of cellulosefibers that are strong in tension and embedded in a matrix of lignin that resists compression. Sometimes Wood is defined as only the secondary xylem in the stems of trees,  or it is defined to include more Broadly the same type of tissue elsewhere Such As in the roots of trees or shrubs. [ quote needed ]In a living tree it performs a support function, enabling woody plants to grow large or to stand up by themselves. It also conveys water and nutrients between the leaves , other growing tissues, and the roots. Wood can also refer to other plant materials with comparable properties, and to material engineered from wood, or wood chips or fiber.
Wood has been used for many years for fuel , as a construction material , for making tools and weapons , furniture and paper , and as a feedstock for the production of purified cellulose and its derivatives, such as cellophane and cellulose acetate .
Wheat is a grass widely grown for its seed , a cereal grain which is a worldwide staple food .    There are many species of wheat which together make up the genus Triticum ; the most widely grown is common wheat ( T. aestivum ).
The archaeological record suggests that wheat was first grown in the Fertile Crescent around 9600 BCE. Botanically, the wheat kernel is a type of fruit called a caryopsis .
Triadica sebifera , Also Known As Sapium sebiferum , is Commonly Known As the Chinese tallow ,  Chinese tallowtree , Florida aspen , chicken tree , gray popcorn tree ,  andCandleberry tree .  The tree is native to eastern Asia , and is most commonly associated with eastern China , Taiwan , and Japan . In these regions, the waxy coating of the seeds is used for candle and soap making, and the leavesare used as herbal medicine to treat boils. The plant sap and leaves are reputed to be toxic, and decaying leaves from the plant are toxic to other species of plant . The specific epithets sebifera and sebiferum mean “wax-bearing” and refer to the vegetable tallow that coats the seeds.
Rice in Sri Lanka has played an important role in the country’s functioning and survival for centuries. Rice continues to be a staple of traditional Sri Lankan cuisine today.
Stover is the leaves and stalks of field crops , such as corn ( maize ), sorghum or soybean, which are commonly left in the field after harvesting the grain . It is similar to straw , the spring left after any cereal grain or grass has been harvested at maturity for its seed. It can be directly grazed by cattle or dried for use as fodder .  Stover has attracted some attention to a potential fuel source, and has also produced biomass for fermentation or feedstock for cellulosic ethanol production.  Stover from various crops can also be used in mushroom compost preparation.  
Sorghum bicolor , commonly called sorghum  ( / s ɔːr ɡ ə m / ) and Also Known As great millet ,  durra , jowari , or milo , is a grass species cultivated for grain ict, qui is used for food for humans, animal feed, and ethanol production. Sorghum originated in northern Africa, and is now widely grown in tropical and subtropical regions.  Sorghum is the world’s fifth-most important cereal crop after rice , wheat ,maize , and barley . S. bicolor is typically an annual, but some cultivars are perennial. It grows in clumps that can reach over 4 m high. The grain is small, ranging from 2 to 4 mm in diameter. Sweet sorghums are sorghum cultivars that are primarily grown for foliage, syrup production, and ethanol; they are taller than those grown for grain.  
Short Rotation Forestry (SRF) is grown as an energy crop for use in power stations, alone or in combination with other fuels such as coal. It is similar to historic fuelwood coppice systems.
SRF is the practice of growing fast-growing trees that reach their economically optimum size between eight and 20 years old. Species used are selected on this basis and include Alder , Ash , Southern Beech , Birch , Eucalyptus , Poplar , Willow ,   New varieties of Paulownia elongata , Paper mulberry , Australian Blackwood and Sycamore .
Short rotation coppice ( SRC ) is coppice grown as an energy crop . This woody solid biomass can be used in such applications as district heating, electric generating stations, or in combination with other fuels. Currently, the leading countries in the UK are Sweden  and the UK.
SRC uses said high yield varieties of poplar and willow . Typically willow species chosen are varieties of the Common Willow Willow Oyster , Salix viminalis . Poplar is generally planted for visual variation rather than being a commercial crop, although some varieties can be outperformed. 
Salix triandra , with the common names almond willow gold almond-leaved willow , is a species of willow native to Europe and Western and Central Asia . It is found from south-easternEngland east to Lake Baikal , and south to Spain and the Mediterranean east to the Caucasus , and the Alborz Mountains. It usually grows in riparian habitats , on river and stream banks, and in wetlands .   
Salix triandra is a deciduous shrub or small tree growing to 10 m (33 ft) tall, usually multistemmed, with an irregular, often leaning crown. Young bark is smooth gray-brown, becoming scaly on older stems with large scales exfoliating (like a plane tree) to leave orange-brown patches. The leaves are broad, lanceolate, 4-11 cm long and 1-3 cm wide, with a serrated margin; they are dull dark green above and green to glaucous-green below, with a 1-2-cm petiole with two conspicuous basal stipules .
Salicornia virginica (American glasswort, pickleweed) is a halophytic perennial dicot which grows in various areas of intertidal salt marshes and can be found in alkaline flats. It is native to various regions of the Northern Hemisphere, including both coasts of North America from Canada to Mexico.
Salicornia bigelovii is a species of flowering plant in the family known by the common names dwarf saltwort  and dwarf glasswort . It is native to coastal areas of the eastern and southern United States , Belize, and coastal Mexico (both the east and west coasts).    It is a plant of salt marshes , a halophyte which grows in saltwater. It is an annual herb producing an erect, branching stem which is joined to many internodes. The fleshy, green to red stem can reach about 60 cm in height. The leaves are usually small plates, peers of which are fused into a band around the stem. The inflorescence is a dense, sticklike spike of flowers. Each flower is made of a penis of sepals enclosing the stamens and stigmas , with no petals. The fruit is an utricle containing tiny, fuzzy seeds. The southern part of the species is represented by the mangrove trees of the Yucatan, where it is a subdominant plant associate in the mangroves. 
Rapeseed ( Brassica napus ), Also Known As rape ,  oilseed rape  (and, in the case of one Particular group of cultivars , canola ), is a bright-yellow flowering member of the family Brassicaceae (mustard or cabbage family), cultivated mainly for its oil-rich seed. It is the third-largest source of vegetable oil in the world. 
Etymology and common names
The term “rape” derives from the Latin word for turnip, rapum . 
Rapeseed is known by many common names in the English language. Some names-have-been applied only to some subspecies (subsp.), Forms (f.), Gold varieties (var.) Of B. napus . B. napus = B. napus subsp. napus = B. napus subsp. napus f. napus .
Panicum virgatum , known as switchgrass , is a perennial warm season bunchgrass native to North America, where it occurs naturally from 55 ° N latitude in Canada southwards to theUnited States and Mexico . Switchgrass is one of the dominant species of the North American tallgrass prairie and can be found in prairie grasslands , in native grass pastures , and naturalized along roadsides. It is used primarily for soil conservation ,production drilling , game cover, as anornamental grass , in phytoremediation projects, fiber, electricity, heat production, for biosequestration of atmospheric carbon dioxide , and more recently for a biomass crop for ethanol and butanol .
Paulownia elongata is a species of tree in the family Paulowniaceae , native to Asia.
The plant’s leaves are very large and pubescent (‘fuzzy-hairy’). This species can be seen with a wide range of environmental conditions. It does not grow at higher altitudes however.
Paulownia is a genus of six to 17 species (depending on taxonomic authority) of flowering plants in the family Paulowniaceae , related to and sometimes included in the Scrophulariaceae . They are present in much of China , south to northern Laos and Vietnam and are long cultivated elsewhere in eastern Asia , notably in Japan and Korea . They are deciduous trees 12-15 m (39-49 ft) tall, with large, heart-shaped leaves 15-40 cm across, arranged in opposite pairs on the stem. The flowersare produced in early spring on panicles 10-30 cm long, with a tubular purple corolla resembling a foxglove flower. The fruit is a dry capsule , containing thousands of minute seeds .
Opuntia ficus-indica is a species of cactus that has long been a domesticated crop plant important in agricultural economies throughout arid and semiarid parts of the world. It is thought to have originated in Mexico.  Some of the common English names for the plant and its fruits are Indian fig opuntia , Barbary fig , pear cactus , spineless cacti , and prickly pear , with this common name Opuntia species. In Mexican Spanish, the plant is called nopal , while the fruit is called tuna, which are names also used in American English , especially as culinary terms.
Nicotiana glauca is a species of tobacco known by the common name tree tobacco . Its leaves are attached to the stalk by petioles (many other Nicotiana species-have sessile leaves) and Its leaves and stems are Neither pubescent nor sticky like Nicotiana tabacum . It Resembles Cestrum parqui purpose differs in the form of leaves and floral fusion of the outer sides. It grows to heights of more than two meters.
