Investing in kiln drying firewood is either a great opportunity to grow your business or a necessity due to local regulation. In either case you need to understand all the costs and challenges. For this purpose we have assembled information on 6 different types of systems that we see offered to the firewood industry.

As you consider which type of firewood kiln system to invest in you should consider these questions:
- Do you need to scale up in production over time or do you have the funds to make it in one investment.
- Will you be competitive based on current fuel cost and if these should increase (especially important on gas heated kilns).
- If you are considering wood waste heating from a central boiler, then realize that you may need a new heat system making expansion more expensive.

Great article from Sawmill & Woodlot magazine about firewood drying.

We hope the compiled information and cost calculation has been helpful in guiding you to make the best decision for you and your company.
