I don't know anything about biomass, but if I was cutting down trees, and paying to heat 75% of it, and possibly disposing of 25% of it, i think I'd find a way to burn it
there's a fuckton of tree that you can't sell as anything but mulch

someone else suggested itt a bigass woodstove inside the drying kiln
seems like a good idea, use an old 120 gallon propane tank, make the flue big enough you can drop shit in from up top so you don't need to air the building out to refuel it, make the intakes adjustable from outside (as opposed to routing them outside alltogether because you do want the air exchange for drying purposes)
