ABSTRACT
The article reports on issues concerning the use of natural resources in Sweden to solve the problem of the world's dwindling oil reserves. Individual homes and district heating facilities in Sweden are often fueled with wood pellets, made from residues from saw mills, which save the use of oil for heating buildings. The article discusses various projects in Sweden aimed at finding chemicals derived from wood components which could be used as a replacement for petroleum products.
