Size reduction provides a means of utilizing many types of dry solids which can be reclaimed, recycled, burned as fuel, or used to generate mulch. Hogs are used to devour waste materials – especially wood waste from sawmills, dimension mills, plywood plants, and other woodworking operations.
Hogs are also used to grind bark removed from raw logs in sawmills and pulp mills, most of which is burned for fuel.
Other applications include pallets, whole logs, veneer scrap, engineered wood products, automobile tires, light aluminium, thin plastics, and polymers.
