Burn organic material, balancing CO2 emissions with the same amount absorbed by replenishment stocks.
Biomass boilers can be very effective when used in decentralised energy centres as a ‘driver’ of larger heat networks. They have also been developed to operate in individual homes, similar to conventional fossil fuel powered boilers.
Biomass boilers are fuelled by entirely renewable materials and the carbon emissions produced are no greater than that absorbed by the material as it is growing.
- Low carbon energy source with low net CO2 emissions
- Fuel flexibility - different biofuels can be used
- More secure fuel supply, more stable prices
- High efficiency operation for heating and hot water
- Waste materials can be recycled as fertilizer
