P.H Winterton and Son’s sawmill waste collection in Berkshire will create animal bedding that will ensure a comfortable night’s sleep. Our range of sawmill waste is recycled as animal bedding that can be used in stables for horses and cows plus cages for smaller pets such as hamsters. Here’s four reasons why using our wood shavings or sawdust bedding is best for your farm – Non-palatable – This means your animals won’t try to eat this unlike if you used straw which is popular with horses. Easy to Store – Our wrapped bales are easy to store and handle, meaning you can stock up on our animal bedding. Eco-friendly – Because we use sawmill from waste materials you will be doing your bit for the environment using a recycled product. Highly absorbent – Our Cheshire Choice equine bedding is made from 100% wood shavings giving it excellent absorbency levels. Driving Superb Sawmill Waste Collection in Berkshire Here at P.H Winterton and Son, we operate a fleet of 30 to 45 feet articulated trailers all fitted with return air systems meaning we can collect large amounts of sawmill waste from your site anywhere across the country.

Electric Sawmill Waste Collection in Leicestershire

Sawmill waste collection in Leicestershire offered by P.H Winterton and Son is the eco-friendliest way to produce electricity. We are firm believers in waste not being wasted, which is why we use sawmill waste to produce biomass fuel (which creates electricity) plus we can use it for comfortable bedding for various animals. How Sawmill Waste Creates Biomass Fuel Here is your basic guide to generating electricity through biomass fuel – The most common way biomass fuel becomes electricity is through the combustion of wooded materials to heat water and produces steam which can spin turbines. Another method of electricity production is using excess steam from biomass plants for on-site manufacturing processes or heating, which can boost your energy efficiency. The wood used for biomass fuel can contain around 18 megajoules (MJ) per kilogram of energy when dried before use. To get a better idea of the equivalent, a kilogram of cut grass contains about 4 million joules (1 million joules = 1 megajoule), which is just slightly more than the kilowatt-hour used in the energy retail market. The UK is fast moving towards the use of biomass fuels instead of fossil fuels such as coal. Here are some of the biggest biomass projects going on at the moment – • Drax Power Station (North Yorkshire) – The largest producer of carbon dioxide in the country has been converting its coal-fired boilers to use biomass fuel instead. • Blackburn Meadows Cogeneration Plant (South Yorkshire) – Harnessing excess heat from combustion this facility provides heating to nearby business through the district heating system • Templeborough Biomass Plant – Opened in August 2017 this plant provides energy for 78,000 homes which saves up to 150,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide each year. • Kent Biomass Power Station – This station which opened in the summer of 2018, services 50,000 homes. • Tees Renewable Energy Plant – Due to finish in 2020 and costing £650m this will be the largest biomass plant in the world, producing enough electricity for 600,00 homes.
