Biomass boilers are an exciting development in the world of renewable energy.
For a long time, organic matter has filled our landfills; decomposing, and emitting the greenhouse gas methane as well as carbon dioxide and other compounds into the atmosphere.
Biomass boilers present the opportunity to reduce this source of waste and benefit from a renewable fuel source at the same time.
Biomass boilers work by burning organic matter and using the heat produced by this process to warm the water used in a property’s heating systems.
Wood fuel such as wood pellets, logs, and wood chips, along with other biological materials, are all possible options as a source of fuel. An owner’s specific fuel choice will depend on factors such as what is available, the room available to store the fuel, and personal preference.
Not only does using biomass boilers reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, but they often work out much cheaper in the long run as well, as the cost of the fuel is less expensive than using gas or oil.
Biomass boilers are available in a range of sizes, from relatively small residential wood stoves where the owner will manually feed the biomass into the combustion chamber, all the way up to industrial, fully automated biomass boilers.
A significant advantage of biomass boilers is that they are a reliable source of renewable energy that is available on demand.
Unlike energy sources such as solar and wind, biomass energy production is not weather dependent. Even if there is no wind blowing or the sun isn’t shining, you can produce power from biomass as and when it is needed.
Biomass boilers are efficient, reliable, and high quality.
They use a renewable energy source that is widely available and they are also an effective way to reduce waste.
