Biomass

Why Use Wood as a Fuel? 

Biomass used as a fuel is considered to be “carbon neutral”. That is to say any CO2 released during combustion of the wood is balanced by the fact the same amount of CO2 is absorbed from the atmosphere by the wood in order to grow. 

After thousands of years of using wood as a primary source of heating in the UK, we have in more recent times exploited an increasing proportion of fossil fuel natural resources to support our modern lifestyles.  In recent years we have seen the resurgence in the use of wood-fuelled appliances including log wood, woodchip and wood pellet boilers and space heaters. We are beginning to see our woodlands and national forests becoming more effectively managed while at the same time benefitting the local economy.

In general, biomass boilers work by burning the wood fuel at high output to maintain optimum efficiency, then storing the heated water produced in an accumulator or buffer tank. Central heating and hot water requirements for the building are then drawn upon from this accumulator store.
