Wood is an important traditional fuel in Malaysia. It is utilised as domestic fuel in the rural areas. It is also used in some important industries such as the smoking of rubber sheets, the curing of tobacco and the manufacture of bricks. Charcoal, a secondary fuel from wood is also used in the domestic sector but its most important use is in the steel and cement industries. In this paper we re-evaluate the importance of wood as a source of fuel and explore the possibilities of its utilisation in the long term.
